Sunset Congo

Sunrise and sunset in the Republic of the Congo

Sunrise today: 6:04 h
Sunset today: 17:59 h
(Times for Brazzaville)

Times for sunrise and sunset in the Republic of the Congo won't differ much all over the year. The reason is the only fair proximity to the equator. So in summer the sun moves slightly to the north and in the winter slightly back to south, but without much change in the distance. E.g. in the Nordic countries of Europe the difference is much more extreme.

With up to approximately 12:20 hours the longest days happen to be in December. In June a night in Brazzaville lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Brazzaville rises at 6:04. The early sunset at 17:59 makes the day currently a bit too short.

Where does the sun rise in the Republic of the Congo?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in the Congo is Impfondo in the region of Likouala. There, the sun rises at 5:43 am and sets at 5:58 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Loandjili (Pointe-Noire) at 6:12 pm.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Brazzaville lies on the 4th degree of southern latitude and thus very close to the equator. While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in the Congo it only lasts an average of 23 minutes. The Congo is so close to the equator that there is no noticeable difference even between June and December.
