Sunrise and sunset in French Polynesia
Sunrise today: 5:20 h
Sunset today: 18:03 h
(Times for Papeete)
The times of sunrise and sunset in French Polynesia 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. Papeete is positioned near the 18 southern latitude. For comparison: New York's latitude is 40th in the north, having a much longer distance to the equator.
With up to 13:10 hours the longest days are in Dezember. In Juni a night in Papeete lasts almost 13 hours.
Who wants to look at the sunrise in these days, has to wake up early. Sunrise in Papeete starts already at 5:20 in the morning. The Sunset can currently be watched at about 18:03 Uhr in the early evening.Back to overview: French Polynesia
