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, causing sunset to last for a different duration. Atafu Village lies on the 9th degree of southern latitude and thus very close to the equator. While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Tokelau, it lasts only an average of 24 minutes. Tokelau is so close to the equator that there is no noticeable difference even between June and December.
