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, causing sunset to last for a different duration. Mbabane lies on the 26th degree of southern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator lasts only about 20 minutes, in Eswatini, this period averages 27 minutes. In June, it's about 26 minutes in Mbabane, while in December it's 28 minutes.
