Spain, Portugal, The Netherlands, France, the United Kingdom, and the United States have all been colonial empires in history. In a broad sense, they all conform to the concept of "empire on which the sun never sets", a global empire. I captured videos of sunsets in these countries recorded by Internet users and uploaded to video websites. I stopped the sunset before the horizon, so that the sun would "never set". In contrast, the tropics, where the sun should be brightest, are plunged into darkness and gloom by sunset.
