Definition of "civil twilight"


The time after sunset and before sunrise when the Sun is below the horizon but not more than 6° below it. During civil twilight, the sky is still quite bright and only the very brightest stars and satellites can be seen.

In some countries, the end of evening civil twilight is also referred to as "lighting up time".

See also nautical twilight and astronomical twilight.
