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. Port-of-Spain lies on the 11th 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 Trinidad and Tobago, it lasts only an average of 24 minutes. In June, it's about 25 minutes in Port-of-Spain, while in December it's 24 minutes.
