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. Douglas lies on the 54th degree of northern latitude and is therefore very far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Isle of Man this period averages 62 minutes. In June, it's about 81 minutes in Douglas, while in December it's 44 minutes.
