How Early the Sun Sets on These Shortest Days of the Year

  • The earliest sunsets of the year occur in late November and early December.
  • In the Lower 48 states, the earliest sunsets happen before 4 p.m.
  • The latest sunrises of the winter occur after the winter solstice.

Although the winter solstice doesn't occur until Dec. 21 at 5:23 p.m. EST, the earliest sunsets of the year are either occurring now or have happened within the past couple of weeks. The days will still get shorter until the solstice, however, because we'll continue to lose daylight with later sunrises each morning.

But how early does the sun set this time of year? The map above, courtesy of climatologist Dr. Brian Brettschneider of the University of Alaska-Fairbanks, answers that question.

At the eastern edge of the Eastern time zone in Caribou, Maine, the sun dips below the horizon at 3:43 p.m. from Dec. 8 to 12. It's slightly better in Boston, where the sun sets at 4:12 p.m. from Dec. 3 to 14 before the evening daylight starts to increase again.

The earliest sunsets are at 4:28 p.m. in New York City from Dec. 3 to 12, with sunset occurring at 4:35 p.m. in Philadelphia from Dec. 4 to 11. In Washington D.C., the sun goes down at 4:46 p.m. from Dec. 2 to 12.

On the West Coast, Seattle's sunset takes place at 4:19 p.m. from Dec. 2 to 19, while Los Angeles begins its decent into darkness at 4:44 p.m. from Nov. 28 to Dec. 10.

Southern states experience a later sunset than northern ones near the winter solstice due to the tilt of the Earth on its axis and its elliptical (not circular) orbit around the sun. In the winter, the Northern Hemisphere is tilted away from the sun. The opposite is true in the summer.

For example, the earliest sunset in Atlanta is at 5:29 p.m. from Nov. 28 to Dec. 10 while the sun goes down at 5:21 p.m. in Dallas from Nov. 26 to Dec. 11. In Key West, Florida, 5:38 p.m. is the earliest the sun sets, occurring from Nov. 23 to Dec. 5.

Areas north of the Arctic Circle – within 23.5 degrees of the North Pole – experience more than two months when the sun never ascends above the horizon. This includes America's northernmost town, Utqiaġvik (formerly known as Barrow), Alaska.

Fairbanks, Alaska, just south of the Arctic Circle, still sees a sunrise and sunset this time of year. On the Dec. 21 winter solstice, sunset is as early as 2:41 p.m. AKST, not even 4 hours after sunrise at 10:58 a.m. AKST.

The map shown in the tweet below illustrates the date of the earliest sunset, and you can see that areas farther south experience their earliest sunset before locations to the north.

The southern parts of Florida and Texas see the earliest sunset in late November, but areas near the Canadian border keep losing daylight in the evening until the second week of December.

The latest sunrises of the winter – which, in many cases, are not the latest sunrises of the entire year since those occur before the end of daylight saving time in early November – don't take place until after the winter solstice in late December or early January.

The southern tier of the United States has to wait more than 33 days after the earliest sunset for the latest sunrise of the winter to arrive. The northern states see the latest winter sunrise three to four weeks after the earliest sunset.

The reason for the large gap between the earliest sunset and latest sunrise can be explained using the equation of time, which you can read about here.

Please note that this web page is the old version of the NOAA Solar Calculator. Back when this calculator was first created, we decided to use a non-standard definition of longitude and time zone, to make coordinate entry less awkward. So on this page, both longitude and time zone are defined as positive to the west, instead of the international standard of positive to the east of the Prime Meridian.

We maintain this page as a courtesy to those people who, for whatever reason, prefer the old calculator. For the rest of you, we encourage you to instead click here to try the updated version of NOAA's Solar Calculator



  1. Select a location from the City pulldown menu, OR select "Enter Lat/Long ->" from the pulldown menu, and manually enter the latitude, longitude and time zone information in the appropriate text boxes. The following sign conventions are used:
  2. You can enter a different time zone for a location by selecting "Enter Lat/Long -->" in the City pulldown box. Otherwise, the time zone associated with the selected city's Local Standard Time will be automatically entered. Selecting "Yes" in the Daylight Saving field will cause the resulting sunrise, sunset and solar noon times to be adjusted forward one hour. If you are uncertain of the time zone for a location, refer to our Time Zone Table.

  3. The program retrieves the current date from your computer, and fills the month, day and year fields. To perform calculations for a different date, simply select a month in the pull down menu, and enter the day and four digit year in the appropriate input boxes. When entering a day or year, you will need to click the "Calculate Sunrise/Sunset" button to update the results for this date.

  4. Once the calculation results are displayed, you may use your web browser's "Print" function to obtain a hardcopy of the results.

  5. For locations above the Arctic Circle and below the Antarctic Circle, when a sunrise or sunset does not occur on the given day the program locates the local time and date of the most recent sunrise or sunset, and the next sunset or sunrise. When this occurs, the UTC fields will display "prior" or "next" information instead of the UTC times.

  6. NOTE: For latitudes greater than 72 degrees N and S, calculations are accurate to within 10 minutes. For latitudes less than +/- 72° accuracy is approximately one minute. See Solar Calculation Details for further explanation.
