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. Saint John’s lies on the 17th degree of northern latitude and thus a good distance from the equator.While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Antigua and Barbuda, it lasts only an average of 25 minutes. In June, it's about 26 minutes in Saint John’s, while in December it's 25 minutes.
