Where does the sun rise in Argentina?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Argentina is Bernardo de Irigoyen in the region of Misiones. There, the sun rises at 6:03 am and sets at 7:30 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Yacimiento Río Turbio (Santa Cruz) at 9:50 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. Buenos Aires lies on the 35th degree of southern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Argentina this period averages 29 minutes. In June, it's about 28 minutes in Buenos Aires, while in December it's 30 minutes.
