Where does the sun rise in Kuwait?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Kuwait is Az Zawr in the region of Al Asimah. There, the sun rises at 4:51 am and sets at 6:35 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Al Jahra' (Muhafazat al Jahra') at 6:37 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. Kuwait City lies on the 29th 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 Kuwait this period averages 27 minutes. In June, it's about 27 minutes in Kuwait City, while in December it's 26 minutes.
