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. Cockburn Town lies on the 21st degree of northern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator lasts only about 20 minutes, on the Turks and Caicos Islands, this period averages 26 minutes. In June, it's about 27 minutes in Cockburn Town, while in December it's 25 minutes.
