The times of sunrise and sunset in Madagascar are caused by the southern position in the hemisphere. Not that far in the south, but quite noticable the longest days are in winter months, while the shortest days fall into our summer. In the northern hemisphere it is vice versa. Antananarivo is positioned near the 19 southern latitude. For comparison: New York's latitude is 40th in the north, having a much longer distance to the equator.

With up to 13:20 hours the longest days are in Dezember. In Juni a night in Antananarivo lasts almost 13 hours.

Who wants to look at the sunrise in these days, has to wake up early. Sunrise in Antananarivo starts already at 5:11 in the morning. The early sunset at 17:56 makes the day currently a bit too short.
