Sunsets near the equator come and go quickly. A few minutes after the sun begins coloring the ocean and sky, it has set. Dusk lasts a few moments, then it is dark.
The sun sets almost perpendicular to the horizon instead of diagonally as seen closer to the north and south poles. The further north or south you go from the equator, the longer a sunset will last.
The north and south movement of the sun throughout the year is quite evident near the equator. These pictures are from the same hill in Puerto Lopez, Ecuador throughout the year.
Thought I would add one sunset photo from the beach.
How long is your sunset?
