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. 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 lasts only an average of 25 minutes.
