What time does the sun rise?

About what time does the sun rise and set in Yellowstone in July? I did a quick search using google and found a collection of DIFFERENT times....

Thanks in advance for your time and help.

You are, as you know, asking about a fairly large area. The times cannot be that different (unlike Glacier, E. and W. sides). Have you seen this website?


I chose W. Yellowstone as a base. You could pick another location, as you have done, but once you arrive, I'd ask any wildlife photographer or Xanterra staff; they'll know as they will be up before dawn to go to the Lamar and Hayden Valleys.

Georgia, I'm about 50 miles west of Yellowstone and at that time of year the sun rises about 6-6:30 and sets around 9:30. So - long days!
