Duration of the sunsetThe 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. Monaco lies on the 44th 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 Principality of Monaco, this period averages 37 minutes. In June, it's about 41 minutes in Monaco, while in December it's 34 minutes.
