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 Helier 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 Jersey this period averages 40 minutes. In June, it's about 43 minutes in Saint Helier, while in December it's 37 minutes.
