    The question looks like a bunch of words strung together. I have no idea what you are asking.

    If the westerner's body is 22.5 degrees for almost 23 hours, they're probably dead.

    Could you be asking something like this?
    "A celestial body is 22.5 degrees above the western horizon. If the current time is 20:45, at what time does the celestial body disappear below the horizon?"
