The above image shows today's lunar phase, and will appear in the sky in this shape tonight. This represents the amount of the moon (the crescent) that will be visible from the earth, and depends on how much of it will be lit up by our sun.
Wondering what the difference is between civil twilight, nautical twilight and astronomical twilight times?
You may have come across the page because you wanted to find out what the sunrise or sunset times are for the Shard End area. Let's explain what those differences are, and how the different metrics are used.
Civil twilight Also known as 'civil dawn', this time begins when the geometric centre of the sun is 6° below the horizon. It also ends when the sun's centre reaches 0°50' below the horizon (dusk) Look out for the brightest planets during dusk and dawn - Venus (the morning star) can sometimes be seen by the naked eye during civil twilight.
Nautical twilight Also known as 'first light'. This begins when the geometric centre of the sun is 12° below the horizon, and ends when the centre reaches 0°50' below the horizon. Useful for sailors and navigators when the brightest stars and the sea's horizon is visible.
Astronomical twilight Defined as when the geometric centre of the sun is 18° below the earth's horizon. At this time (beginning and end of astronomical twilight) the skies should still appear completely dark to the naked eye, and all visible stars (on a clear night) can be seen.
