Sunset Micronesia

Sunrise and sunset in the Federated States of Micronesia

Sunrise today: 5:39 h
Sunset today: 17:43 h
(Times for Weno)

Sunrise and sunset in the Federated States of Micronesia 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 12:40 hours the longest days happen to be in June. In December a night in Weno lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Weno rises at 5:39. The early sunset at 17:43 makes the day currently a bit too short.

Sunrise and sunset in the most important cities of Federated States of Micronesia

Sunset MicronesiaThe cities are ordered by their geographic position from east to west, so in an approximate direction of the sun course. Since the orbit of the sun is elliptical, sunrise or sunset never happen on a whole longitude at the same time. All data given for October 4th., localtime in the Federated States of Micronesia

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. Weno 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, in the Federated States of Micronesia it only lasts an average of 24 minutes. Micronesia is so close to the equator that there is no noticeable difference even between June and December.
