Where does the sun rise in Qatar?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Qatar is Al-Wakrah in the region of Al Wakrah. There, the sun rises at 4:43 am and sets at 6:17 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Dukhan (Baladiyat ar Rayyan) at 6:21 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. Doha lies on the 25th 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 Qatar this period averages 25 minutes. In June, it's about 26 minutes in Doha, while in December it's 25 minutes.
