Where does the sun rise in East Timor?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Timor-Leste is Lospalos in the region of . There, the sun rises at 6:30 am and sets at 7:00 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Pante Makasar at 19:11.

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. Dili lies on the 9th degree of southern latitude and thus very close to the equator. While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Timor-Leste, it lasts only an average of 24 minutes. Timor-Leste is so close to the equator that there is no noticeable difference even between June and December.
