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. Saint Peter Port lies on the 49th 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 Guernsey this period averages 41 minutes. In June, it's about 44 minutes in Saint Peter Port, while in December it's 38 minutes.
