Sunrise and sunset in Mali

Sunrise today: 6:20 h
Sunset today: 18:27 h
(Times for Bamako)

Sunrise and sunset in Mali do not differ significantly throughout the year. The reason for this is the proximity to the equator. Thus, the sun swings north in the middle of the year and south at the turn of the year, without moving too far away. In countries like Canada or Norway, however, the difference is much more extreme.

With up to approximately 12:50 hours the longest days happen to be in June. In December a night in Bamako lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Bamako rises at 6:20. The Sunset can currently be watched at about 18:27 Uhr in the early evening.

Where does the sun rise in Mali?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Mali is Inékar in the region of Gao. There, the sun rises at 5:35 am and sets at 5:43 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Kayes at 6:41 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. Bamako lies on the 13th degree of northern latitude and thus a good distance from the equator.While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Mali it only lasts an average of 25 minutes. In June, it's about 25 minutes in Bamako, while in December it's 24 minutes.
