Sunrise and sunset in Sudan

Sunrise today: 5:38 h
Sunset today: 17:42 h
(Times for Khartoum)

Sunrise and sunset in Sudan 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 13:10 hours the longest days happen to be in June. In December a night in Khartoum lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Khartoum rises at 5:38. The early sunset at 17:42 makes the day currently a bit too short.

Where does the sun rise in Sudan?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Sudan is Tokar in the region of Red Sea. There, the sun rises at 5:18 am and sets at 5:20 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Geneina (Western Darfur) at 6:22 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. Khartoum lies on the 16th 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 Sudan it only lasts an average of 25 minutes. In June, it's about 25 minutes in Khartoum, while in December it's 24 minutes.
