Definition of Twilight

Definition of Twilight

With some relief that the Inland Northwest has received a normal ration of snow, we can look forward to composing images for the Winter Scene at Twilight subject for March. But what is twilight? Harvey Brown submitted a clear definition:

twilight: the light from the sky between full night and sunrise or between sunset and full night produced by diffusion of sunlight through the atmosphere and its dust.

There are 3 stages of twilight that occur before sunrise or after sunset as follows:

  1. Civil: 30-35 min. after sunrise/sunset
  2. Nautical: Next 40 min. after Civil
  3. Astronomical: Next 40 min. after Nautical
