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. 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 only lasts about 20 minutes, on the Turks and Caicos Islands this period averages 25 minutes. In June, it's about 25 minutes in Cockburn Town, while in December it's 24 minutes.
