The Six-Hour Sunset

I traveled to Boston with an Airbus A330-300, departing at a quarter past six in Frankfurt, Germany. With a scheduled arrival at Logan international airport at approximately 8pm, we flew almost along the day/night border falling little behind with a ground speed of roughly 820km/h (540mph) having a sunset vibe throughout the entire flight. Heading northwest first, I could enjoy the full moon sitting on the eastern horizon; for about the first three hours. For the last hours of the flight, now in southern direction, it was exactly the same case with the red sun, that seemed to deny the ending of the very October 2, 2012.
