Fun Fact

The term “twilight” comes from the Old English word “twi-leoht,” which means “half-light.” It refers to the time just before night when the sun has set, but its light still softly illuminates the sky. This magical period is further divided into three stages: civil twilight, nautical twilight, and astronomical twilight, each defined by the angle of the sun below the horizon. During civil twilight, the sun is less than 6 degrees below the horizon, allowing objects to be clearly distinguishable. Nautical twilight occurs when the sun is between 6 and 12 degrees below the horizon, making it possible to see the horizon and stars. Astronomical twilight happens when the sun is between 12 and 18 degrees below the horizon, and the sky is dark enough for astronomical observations.
