Sunrise and sunset in Aruba

Sunrise today: 6:28 h
Sunset today: 18:29 h
(Times for Oranjestad)

Sunrise and sunset in Aruba 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 12:50 hours the longest days happen to be in June. In December a night in Oranjestad lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Oranjestad rises at 6:28. The Sunset can currently be watched at about 18:29 Uhr 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. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Oranjestad lies on the 13th 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 Aruba it only lasts an average of 24 minutes. In June, it's about 25 minutes in Oranjestad, while in December it's 24 minutes.
