1. Waaaaay after dawn.

2. When it gets dusky.

3. Before nightfall.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

From Wikipedia:

Civil dusk
The time at which the sun is 6 degrees below the horizon in the evening. At this time objects are distinguishable and some stars and planets are visible to the naked eye.

Nautical dusk
Is when the sun is 12 degrees below the horizon in the evening. At this time, objects are no longer distinguishable, and the horizon is no longer visible to the naked eye.

Astronomical dusk
The time at which the sun is 18 degrees below the horizon in the evening. At this time the sun no longer illuminates the sky, and thus no longer interferes with astronomical observations.

I don't think this helps you though! Sorry.

It also depends on your latitude. [www.csgnetwork.com] In San Diego (32.7 N) twilight only lasts about 20 minutes. In Seattle (47.6 N) it lasts almost an hour during the summer. Fireworks usually start 15 to 30 minutes after sunset.

It is what it is.

It was once said that the most terrible phrase in world history was "civil war". We know now they were wrong.


"Twilight Marathon".

A little bit late, however this is the best way to find out this sort of data.

I think they waited until a little after official "dusk" to start the show . . . we got out there in time to see maybe the last half of the display from maybe 1/2 mile away, and I think it was already after 9:30 PM.
