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. Saint Peter Port lies on the 49th degree of northern latitude and is therefore very far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator lasts only about 20 minutes, in Guernsey, this period averages 45 minutes. In June, it's about 52 minutes in Saint Peter Port, while in December it's 38 minutes.
