Does the sunset or sunrise last longer?

    The sunrise and sunset in one location should be approximately the same length. For San Francisco, CA both sunrise and sunset are about 27 minutes in length. The sunrise and sunset is the visual change when the eye is looking at the sun through more layers of atmosphere as the sun is coming into or falling out of line of site. So since the speed of the earth’s rotation is constant, it takes the sun the same amount of time to rise as fall.
