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. Douglas lies on the 54th 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 Isle of Man, this period averages 62 minutes. In June, it's about 80 minutes in Douglas, while in December it's 44 minutes.
