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. Kingston lies on the 29th degree of southern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator lasts only about 20 minutes, on Norfolk Island, this period averages 28 minutes. In June, it's about 27 minutes in Kingston, while in December it's 29 minutes.
