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. Basseterre 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 Saint Kitts and Nevis, it lasts only an average of 25 minutes. In June, it's about 26 minutes in Basseterre, while in December it's 25 minutes.
