Night and Day!?

Why is the night as long as the daytime, if not longer? I quit playing this game for this particular reason, it's dark most of the time which isn't fun at all, Minecraft's night is easier to survive and more interesting, this game at night is ridiculously hard, boring because it seems endless, I'm going back to Minecraft!

Actually, the daytime lasts from 4:30 AM to 7:30 PM, which is 15 real minutes. Night time lasts from 7:30 PM to 4:30 AM the next day, only 9 minutes of real time. It may seem longer to you because you're not doing anything during that time. I suggest either switching out of Terraria during night time (if you're in multiplayer; make sure you're in a safe place!), or crafting a watch and using the night time to mine underground or explore other locations that are hostile all the time such the Corruption.
