Twilight is when the sun goes down and light reflects on dust particles and clouds. The only reason we have twilight is because of dust in the atmosphere and the way the sunlight scatters it. Bringing pleasant sensations since the beginning of time, twilight is classified as the light from the sky between nighttime and sunrise or between sunset and the full night.
