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. Saipan lies on the 15th degree of northern latitude and thus a good distance from the equator.While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, on the Northern Mariana Islands it only lasts an average of 23 minutes. In June, it's about 24 minutes in Saipan, while in December it's 23 minutes.
