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. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Basse-Terre lies on the 16th 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 Guadeloupe it only lasts an average of 25 minutes. Guadeloupe is so close to the equator that there is no noticeable difference even between June and December.
