Sunrise and sunset on the Solomon Islands

Sunrise today: 6:25 h
Sunset today: 18:07 h
(Times for Honiara)

Times for sunrise and sunset on the Solomon Islands won't differ much all over the year. The reason is the only fair proximity to the equator. So in summer the sun moves slightly to the north and in the winter slightly back to south, but without much change in the distance. E.g. in the Nordic countries of Europe the difference is much more extreme.

With up to approximately 12:40 hours the longest days happen to be in December. In June a night in Honiara lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Honiara rises at 6:25. The Sunset can currently be watched at about 18:07 Uhr in the early evening.

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. Honiara lies on the 9th degree of southern 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 Solomon Islands it only lasts an average of 23 minutes. The Solomon Islands is so close to the equator that there is no noticeable difference even between June and December.
