"Civil Twilight"

What's so civil about it, anyhow?

Civil twilight, for those of you not in the know, is the period ranging from 30 minutes before sunrise to sunrise, and sunset to 30 minutes after sunset. (Technically, it is defined as the period between sunset and sunrise where the sun is less than 6 degrees below the horizon...) And it's a beautiful time to fly...

I went up last night after work, just a little pattern practice, touch-and-go landings, and it was absolutely gorgeous. I got to see all the color on the trees, and watch the sunset at the same time...in little snippets, of course, because not crashing is priority numero uno when it comes to flying. ;)
