It is Military slang. It is usually used to refer to any time when the sun isn't up, usually between mid-night and 4 am or so. Most operations start at Oh dark thirty, much earlier than a normal 'person' would think civilized.


0-Dark-30 is 30 minutes before sunrise.


0-dark-30 refers to a time (any time really) where the sun isn't up, but you are(and you're probably working). It doesn't mean military, but generally this is when Military members have a lot of work, so it applies well to them.
