Civil twilight (or white night) from sunset to sunrise: Tampere, Oulu, Umeå, Trondheim, Tórshavn, Reykjavík, Nuuk, Whitehorse, Yellowknife, Anchorage, Fairbanks, Arkhangelsk, Yakutsk and Baltasound. In the Southern Hemisphere, the only minor permanent settlement to experience this is Villa Las Estrellas, on the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, politically part of Chile. Boyle, J.R. (1890), Vestiges of Old Newcastle and Gateshead, Newcastle upon Tyne: Andrew Reid, Sons & Co.

In Arctic and Antarctic latitudes in wintertime, the polar night only rarely produces complete darkness for 24 hours each day. This can occur only at locations within 5.5 degrees of latitude of the Pole, and there only on dates close to the winter solstice. At all other latitudes and dates, the polar night includes a daily period of twilight, when the Sun is not far below the horizon. Around winter solstice, when the solar declination changes slowly, complete darkness lasts several weeks at the Pole itself, e.g., from May 11 to July 31 at Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station. [a] North Pole has the experience of this from November 13 to January 29. Under clear weather conditions, civil twilight approximates the limit at which solar illumination suffices for the human eye to clearly distinguish terrestrial objects. Enough illumination renders artificial sources unnecessary for most outdoor activities. At civil dawn and at civil dusk sunlight clearly defines the horizon while the brightest stars and planets can appear. As observed from the Earth (see apparent magnitude), sky-gazers know Venus, the brightest planet, as the "morning star" or "evening star" because they can see it during civil twilight.

Civil twilight is the period when enough natural light remains that artificial light in towns and cities is not needed. In the United States' military, the initialisms BMCT (begin morning civil twilight, i.e., civil dawn) and EECT (end evening civil twilight, i.e., civil dusk) are used to refer to the start of morning civil twilight and the end of evening civil twilight, respectively. Civil dawn is preceded by morning nautical twilight and civil dusk is followed by evening nautical twilight. Civil twilight in a small town in the Mojave DesertBriggs notes the similarity between the fairies and ghosts in the Denton Hall tale. She suggests this may be because ghost stories are more common than fairy stories. Indeed, “[o]ne might be tempted to say that this age is the last in which any traditional fairy anecdotes will be found” (1961: 519). Nautical twilight: between 54°33'43" and 60°33'43" north or south. In the northern hemisphere this includes the center of Russia, Canada, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Denmark. In the southern hemisphere this includes the southernmost point of South America, and Ushuaia in Argentina. When nautical twilight lasts all night, this is also referred as a white night. [13] In the months of March or September after the equinoxes, both astronomical dawn and astronomical dusk occurs at latitudes less than 67°45' North or South, because in the months of March or September after the equinoxes the Sun’s declination is less than 4°15' from the Equator; Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers and listeners around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters.

In the months of January or July, both astronomical dawn and astronomical dusk occurs at latitudes less than 48°50' North or South, because in the months of January or July the Sun’s declination is less than 23°10' from the Equator; The Silky stories related by Briggs feel much more in keeping with the earlier ideas of Silky. She sounds playful when she’s around people she likes, and angry around those she doesn’t. And the idea of Silky helping around the house at the hall also fits in with the earlier ideas of Silky tidying messy houses. During the equinoxes, both astronomical dawn and astronomical dusk occurs at latitudes less than 72°00' North or South , because during the equinoxes the Sun is crossing the Equator line; Robert Jordan was a giant of fiction whose words helped a whole generation of fantasy writers, including myself, find our true voices. I thanked him then, but I didn’t thank him enough.” —Peter V. Brett, internationally bestselling author of The Demon Cycle series Jordan is able to take ... familiar elements and make them his own, in a powerful novel of wide and complex scope. Open religious and political conflicts add a gritty realism, while the cities and courts provide plenty of drama and splendor. Women have a stronger role than in Tolkien.... Each character in this large cast remains distinct.... Their adventures are varied, and exciting.... The Eye of the World stands alone as a fantasy epic.” — LocusMat is puzzled since there doesn't seem to be any kind of search going on for Tuon. He decides though that enough time has gone by that he should be leaving Ebou Dar. From London, there’s about a 90-minute-observing window before Jupiter dips below 20 degrees in altitude, though the planet is probably already beyond meaningful observation. However, a pair of 10 x 50 binoculars can show Jupiter’s four bright Galilean moons, while a small telescope reveals the planet’s major dark belts and bright zones in any moments of steady seeing. I owe Robert Jordan so much. Without him, modern fantasy would be bereft of the expansive, deep worlds and the giant casts which I love so dearly. It's not often I can look at another author and say: that person paved my way. But such is exactly the case with Jordan.” —Jenn Lyons, author of The Ruin of Kings Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn himself, has cleansed the Dark One's taint from the male half of the True Source, and everything has changed. Yet nothing has, for only men who can channel believe that saidin is clean again, and a man who can channel is still hated and feared—even one prophesied to save the world. Now, Rand must gamble again, with himself at stake, and he cannot be sure which of his allies are really enemies. Did you, now?” Mat grinned, showing teeth. He could manage an insolent grin that sent most puffed-up fools into apoplexy. Egeanin was far from a fool, most times, but puffed-up she was. Ship captain and noblewoman. He did not know which was worse. Bah for both! “Well, I was about ready to head that way. Unless you’re not done fishing, Noal. We can wait here awhile, if you’re not.”

In the months of February or August, both astronomical dawn and astronomical dusk occurs at latitudes less than 53°47' North or South , because in the months of February or August the Sun’s declination is less than 18°13' from the Equator; Lasting from one day to the next edit Timelapse video of twilight and sunrise in Gjøvik in February 2021 In Christian practice, " vigil" observances often occur during twilight on the evening before major feast days or holidays. For example, the Easter Vigil is held in the hours of darkness between sunset on Holy Saturday and sunrise on Easter Day — most commonly in the evening of Holy Saturday or midnight — and is the first celebration of Easter, days traditionally being considered to begin at sunset. Civil twilight: between 60°33'43" and 65°43'43" north or south. In the northern hemisphere, this includes the center of Iceland, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Faroe Islands and Shetland Island. In the southern hemisphere this includes parts of the Southern Ocean and the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. When civil twilight lasts all night, this is also referred as a white night.

Venus, Saturn and Jupiter are joined in the early-evening sky soon after sunset by a waxing crescent Moon. Watch it as it passes each planet over the course of 6th to 9th December. AN graphic by Greg Smye-Rumsby. So perhaps Silky really is a sprite, and we misinterpret her as a ghost in an era more disposed towards the supernatural than fairies.
