Parts of a day!

I was under the impression that there were only 4 parts to day- morning, afternoon, evening and night. It blew my mind when i found out that technically there are ten parts to it!.

1.Dawn

The first appearance of light ( very weak light ) in the sky.

2.Twilight

It is the time between Dawn and Sunrise.

3.Sunrise

The instant at which the upper edge of the Sun appears over the eastern horizon in the morning.

4.Morning.

Morning is the period of time between dawn and noon ( 12 ‘o’ clock in the daytime).

5.Daylight.

Constitutes all the time that the sun is right above our heads.

6.Evening.

The period of the day between late afternoon and night.

7.Sunset

The time of sunset is defined in astronomy as the moment when the trailing edge of the Sun’s disk disappears below the horizon.

8. Twilight

The time between Sunset and Dusk.

9.Dusk.

Dusk is the darkest stage of twilight in the evening.

10.Night.

The complete absence of direct sunlight. (Since moon light is a form of indirect sunlight )
