A general rule of thumb is that golden hour is about an hour after sunrise and an hour before sunset.
Is twilight a night or morning?
You can define twilight simply as the time of day between daylight and darkness, whether that’s after sunset, or before sunrise. It’s a time when the light from the sky appears diffused and often pinkish. The sun is below the horizon, but its rays are scattered by Earth’s atmosphere to create the colors of twilight.
