Sunset Seychelles

Sunrise and sunset on the Seychelles

Sunrise today: 6:19 h
Sunset today: 18:41 h
(Times for Victoria)

Sunrise and sunset on the Seychelles 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 12:30 hours the longest days happen to be in December. In June a night in Victoria lasts almost 13 hours.

During these days, the sun in Victoria rises at 6:19. The Sunset can currently be watched at about 18:41 in the early evening.

Sunrise and sunset in the most important cities of the Seychelles

Sunset SeychellesThe cities are ordered by their geographic position from east to west, so in an approximate direction of the sun's course. Since the orbit around the sun is elliptical, sunrise or sunset never happen on a whole longitude at the same time. All data given for January 26th., localtime on the Seychelles

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. Victoria lies on the 5th 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, on the Seychelles, it lasts only an average of 24 minutes. The Seychelles is so close to the equator that there is no noticeable difference even between June and December.
