Where does the sun rise in Uruguay?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Uruguay is Río Branco in greater region Central Interior. There, the sun rises at 6:08 am and sets at 6:37 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Nueva Palmira (Rio de la Plata) at 6:58 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. Montevideo lies on the 35th 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 Uruguay this period averages 31 minutes. In June, it's about 29 minutes in Montevideo, while in December it's 32 minutes.
