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. Kingston lies on the 29th degree of southern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, on Norfolk Island this period averages 27 minutes. In June, it's about 26 minutes in Kingston, while in December it's 27 minutes.
