Sunrise and sunset on the Cocos Islands

Times for sunrise and sunset on the Cocos Islands won't differ much all over the year. The reason is the only fair proximity to the equator. So in summer the sun moves slightly to the north and in the winter slightly back to south, but without much change in the distance. E.g. in the Nordic countries of Europe the difference is much more extreme.

With up to approximately 12:50 hours the longest days happen to be in Dezember. In Juni a night in West Island lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in West Island rises at 6:20. The early sunset at 17:47 makes the day currently a bit too short.
