Sunrise and sunset in Sierra Leone

Sunrise today: 6:50 h
Sunset today: 18:32 h
(Times for Freetown)
Sunrise and sunset in Sierra Leone 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 12:40 hours the longest days happen to be in June. In December a night in Freetown lasts almost 13 hours.
During these days, the sun in Freetown rises at 6:50. The Sunset can currently be watched at about 18:32 in the early evening.

Where does the sun rise in Sierra Leone?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Sierra Leone is Buedu in the region of Eastern Province. There, the sun rises at 6:38 am and sets at 6:21 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Freetown (Western Area) at 18:32.

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. Freetown lies on the 8th degree of northern latitude and thus very close to the equator. While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Sierra Leone, it lasts only an average of 24 minutes. Sierra Leone is so close to the equator that there is no noticeable difference even between June and December.
