Sunrise and sunset in Niger

Sunrise today: 6:22 h
Sunset today: 19:16 h
(Times for Niamey)

Sunrise and sunset in Niger 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 13 hours the longest days happen to be in June. In December a night in Niamey lasts almost 13 hours.

During these days, the sun in Niamey rises at 6:22. The Sunset can currently be watched at about 19:16 in the early evening.

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, causing sunset to last for a different duration. Niamey lies on the 14th 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 Niger, it lasts only an average of 25 minutes. In June, it's about 25 minutes in Niamey, while in December it's 24 minutes.
