Sunrise today: 6:22 h
Sunset today: 18:30 h
(Times for Majuro)

Sunrise and sunset on the Marshall Islands do not differ significantly throughout the year. The reason for this is the proximity to the equator. Thus, the sun swings north in the middle of the year and south at the turn of the year, without moving too far away. In countries like Canada or Norway, however, the difference is much more extreme.

With up to approximately 12:30 hours the longest days happen to be in June. In December a night in Majuro lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Majuro rises at 6:22. The Sunset can currently be watched at about 18:30 Uhr in the early evening.

Where does the sun rise on the Marshall Islands?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city on the Marshall Islands is Mili in the region of Mili Atoll. There, the sun rises at 6:20 am and sets at 6:29 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Ujae (Ujae Atoll) at 6:53 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. Majuro lies on the 7th degree of northern latitude and thus very close to the equator. While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, on the Marshall Islands it only lasts an average of 24 minutes. The Marshall Islands is so close to the equator that there is no noticeable difference even between June and December.
