Sunset Wallis and Futuna

Sunrise and sunset in Wallis and Futuna

Sunrise today: 5:57 h
Sunset today: 17:25 h
(Times for Mata-Utu)

Times for sunrise and sunset in Wallis and Futuna 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 13 hours the longest days happen to be in December. In June a night in Mata-Utu lasts almost 13 hours.

In these days the sun in Mata-Utu rises at 5:57. The early sunset at 17:25 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. Mata-Utu lies on the 13th degree of southern latitude and thus a good distance from the equator. While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Wallis and Futuna it only lasts an average of 23 minutes. Wallis and Futuna is so close to the equator that there is no noticeable difference even between June and December.
