Sunrise and sunset in Paraguay

Sunrise today: 6:19 h
Sunset today: 17:14 h
(Times for Asunción)

The times of sunrise and sunset in Paraguay 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. Asunción is positioned near the 25 southern latitude. For comparison: New York's latitude is 40th in the north, having a much longer distance to the equator.

With up to 13:50 hours the longest days are in December. In June a night in Asunción lasts almost 14 hours.

In these days the sun in Asunción rises at 6:19. The early sunset at 17:14 makes the day currently a bit too short.

Where does the sun rise in Paraguay?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Paraguay is Salto del Guairá in the region of Canindeyú. There, the sun rises at 6:04 am and sets at 5:02 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Capitán Pablo Lagerenza (Alto Paraguay) at 5:35 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. Asunción lies on the 25th 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 Paraguay this period averages 25 minutes. In June, it's about 25 minutes in Asunción, while in December it's 26 minutes.
