Sunset French Guiana

Sunrise and sunset in French Guiana

Sunrise today: 6:24 h
Sunset today: 18:44 h
(Times for Cayenne)

Times for sunrise and sunset in French Guiana won't differ much all over the year. The reason is the only fair proximity to the equator. So in summer the sun moves slightly to the north and in the winter slightly back to south, but without much change in the distance. E.g. in the Nordic countries of Europe the difference is much more extreme.

With up to approximately 12:30 hours the longest days happen to be in Juni. In Dezember a night in Cayenne lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Cayenne rises at 6:24. The Sunset can currently be watched at about 18:44 Uhr in the early evening.
