(Times for Wellington)
The times of sunrise and sunset in New Zealand are caused by the southern position in the hemisphere. Not that far in the south, but quite noticable the longest days are in winter months, while the shortest days fall into our summer. In the northern hemisphere it is vice versa. Wellington is positioned near the 41 southern latitude. For comparison: New York's latitude is 40th in the north, having a much longer distance to the equator.
With up to 15:10 hours the longest days are in Dezember. In Juni a night in Wellington lasts almost 15 hours.
In these days the sun in Wellington rises at 6:07. The sunset on the other hand is currently late at 20:54 in the evening.Back to overview: New Zealand
