Sunrise and sunset in Bolivia

Sunrise today: 6:39 h
Sunset today: 17:55 h
(Times for Sucre)

The times of sunrise and sunset in Bolivia are caused by the southern position in the hemisphere. Not that far in the south, but quite noticable the longest days are in winter months, while the shortest days fall into our summer. In the northern hemisphere it is vice versa. Sucre is positioned near the 19 southern latitude. For comparison: New York's latitude is 40th in the north, having a much longer distance to the equator.

With up to 13:20 hours the longest days are in December. In June a night in Sucre lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Sucre rises at 6:39. The early sunset at 17:55 makes the day currently a bit too short.

Where does the sun rise in Bolivia?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Bolivia is Puerto Quijarro in the region of Santa Cruz. There, the sun rises at 6:07 am and sets at 5:27 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Yumani (La Paz) at 6:15 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. Sucre lies on the 19th degree of southern 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 Bolivia it only lasts an average of 24 minutes. Bolivia is so close to the equator that there is no noticeable difference even between June and December.
