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 6:16 am and sets at 7:25 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Capitán Pablo Lagerenza (Alto Paraguay) at 19:46.

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, causing sunset to last for a different duration. Asunción lies on the 25th degree of southern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator lasts only about 20 minutes, in Paraguay, this period averages 27 minutes. In June, it's about 26 minutes in Asunción, while in December it's 28 minutes.
