(Times for Douglas)

The times of sunrise and sunset in Isle of Man are significantly influenced by the country's very northern position in the hemisphere. Relatively high in the north the days in summer are long and short in winter. With up to approximately 17:20 hours the longest days happen in June. On the other hand, the longest and darkest nights are in winter (in the southern hemisphere it is the other way around). In December a night in Douglas lasts almost 17 hours.

Who wants to look at the sunrise in these days, can take it easy. Late by 8:11 the sun rises in Douglas. The early sunset at 16:50 makes the day currently a bit too short.

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. Douglas lies on the 54th degree of northern latitude and is therefore very far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Isle of Man this period averages 50 minutes. In June, it's about 55 minutes in Douglas, while in December it's 44 minutes.
