Sunset

#5 A 133,225 Day Year

If the Earth slowed down to one rotation a year, a condition called 'sun synchronous,' then one day would last 365 days long. The day would be 6 months long of scorching sun and 6 months long of freezing night. If the Earth stopped spinning altogether, then your region would indicate what you have permanently. So if you stopped in nighttime, then you'll be stuck in the twilight zone forever.
