Artist's Description

Dawn (from an Old English verb dagian “to become day”) or astronomical dawn is the time that marks, depending on the specific usage, the beginning of the twilight before sunrise, the period of the pre-sunrise twilight or the time of sunrise. When identified as the beginning of or the period of twilight, it is recognized by the presence of weak sunlight, while the Sun itself is still below the horizon.

Astronomical twilight begins at the moment after which the sky is no longer completely dark after astronomical dawn. This occurs when the Sun is 18 degrees below the horizon in the morning.Though it is possible to localize the direction of the Sun during astronomical dawn and dusk, astronomical dawn and dusk are night, even without clouds. The zenith is extremely dark and more than just the brightest stars can be seen (except low above the horizon in the direction of the sun). Read more
