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. Gibraltar lies on the 36th degree of northern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Gibraltar this period averages 31 minutes. In June, it's about 33 minutes in Gibraltar, while in December it's 30 minutes.
