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. Monaco lies on the 44th 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 Principality of Monaco this period averages 34 minutes. In June, it's about 36 minutes in Monaco, while in December it's 33 minutes.
