    if you assume that the sun travels in an arc directly overhead then you can get the angular velocity of the sun as\[\omega=\frac{180^{\circ}}{12 \text{ hours}}=15^{\circ}/\text{h}\]then \[\Delta t=\frac{\Delta\theta}{w}=\frac{55^{\circ}-15^{\circ}}{15^{\circ}/h}=\frac{8}{3}h=160\text{ min}\]

    but here the sun is at 15 degrees at 8 am so the time zone are a bit messed up. I guess it is plausible as long as the area is right on the edge of a time zone, but you would expect the sun to rise and set around 6am and 6 pm.
