How do I say ' It feels like' in German? I want to say it in this context: The time over here is 4 in the afternoon, but it feels like 9 in the evening.

Mein Versuch ist : Die Uhr ist 16 Uhr, aber es sieht aus, als ob es 22 Uhr wäre.

... aber es fühlt sich an, als ob ...

or

... aber es wirkt, als ob ...
