Longest Day of the Year to Last Nearly 14 Hours Today in Pakistan

Today marks the longest day of the year in Pakistan, with nearly 14 hours of daylight. Different cities across the country will experience varying lengths of daylight.

In Karachi, the day lasts for 13 hours and 41 minutes. This is a significant increase compared to the winter solstice in December, when the city gets only 10 hours and 33 minutes of daylight.

Islamabad, the capital city, will have 14 hours and 32 minutes of daylight. This means residents will enjoy almost four more hours of daylight compared to the shortest days in winter.

Lahore will see around 14 hours and 12 minutes of daylight today. In this city, the sun rises at 4:57 AM and sets at 7:09 PM, leaving about 9 hours and 48 minutes of night time.

As the summer progresses, the daylight hours will gradually decrease. This will continue until the autumn equinox on September 22, when day and night are approximately equal in length.

These variations in daylight are part of the natural cycle of the seasons, caused by the tilt of the Earth’s axis and its orbit around the sun. Today‚Äôs extended daylight is a hallmark of the summer solstice, providing ample time for outdoor activities and enjoying the warm weather.
