Sunset today: 17:45 h
(Times for Lilongwe)

Times for sunrise and sunset in Malawi 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 13 hours the longest days happen to be in Dezember. In Juni a night in Lilongwe lasts almost 13 hours.

Who wants to look at the sunrise in these days, has to wake up early. Sunrise in Lilongwe starts already at 5:11 in the morning. The early sunset at 17:45 makes the day currently a bit too short.
