Where does the sun rise in Israel?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Israel is Metulla in the region of Northern District. There, the sun rises at 5:30 am and sets at 7:38 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Ashqelon (Southern District) at 7:39 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. Jerusalem lies on the 32nd degree of northern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Israel this period averages 28 minutes. In June, it's about 28 minutes in Jerusalem, while in December it's 27 minutes.
