Send me an exact time and direction, and I will send you the name of the constellation(s). There are many around the sky at your location just after sunset, but the sky is still very bright at that time. Among the constellations that are there and probably not visible are: Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Andromeda, Libra, Scorpius and of course Ursa Major.

The full moon is visible above the eastern horizon right after sunset.

The full moon is visible from about sunset until about sunrise.

The best time to see a constellation in the night sky is after the sunset. The best time to see a constellation in the morning is before sunrise.

yes, mercury can be visible at sunrise or sunset as a very bright or orange star

yes it is better to see it at sunset.

It is generally about 18 minutes between sunset and the end of evening twilight.

Venus low in the South around sunset, very bright, Jupiter later high up, Uranus in the early evening in Pisces but you need to know exactly where to look with binoculars.

Mercury and Venus are visible to naked eye or small telescope observation at these times but are also visible in transit of the sun (as they go across the disc of the sun). This means that no planets are only visible at sunrise or sunset.

As of October 2009, Jupiter is very bright and visible from sunset until about 1AM.

It begins at sunset on Friday and ends when three stars are visible (or would, theoretically, be visible) on Saturday.

Venus. This planet is visible just prior to sunrise and just after sunset depending on the time of year, and is the brightest natural light in the sky.

All comets are found before sunrise or sunset. As a general rule comets are not visible in day light so they would be found after sunset

At night (sorry, couldn't resist). Gemini can be seen most of the year if you pick the right time of night to look. In June and July the sun is moving through Gemini, so it's not visible at night, but from early August through late May it can be seen (just before sunrise in August, just after sunset in May).

Venus, Mars and Saturn are all visible low in the west just after sunset. In the case of Venus, even BEFORE sunset. Jupiter rises about 10PM, and is visible for the rest of the night. If you have a pretty good telescope, the planet Neptune is just "above and right" of Jupiter.

From January - May Skip June And July - December. It can be seen In Late June Before The Sunset

The planet Venus is clearly visible in the western sky after sunset. It would be the brightest thing in the sky, visible even through light cloud cover.

Sunset is often called Dusk (Dawn is the same as sunrise) Twilight can be used, but the word "twilight" refers to the hours of light while the sun is not visible both before sunrise and after sunset.

You can observe Orion in the early spring, but at that season it is visible only in the early morning. We think of Orion as a fall constellation, because in the fall it rises at sunset and is prominent when normal people are up in the evenings. In the summer, Orion rises about the same time that the Sun does.

Just after sunset during the first week after New Moon.

Sunset on the moon would be colorless. Without an atmosphere to reflect and scatter the light like on Earth there would be no colors visible.

Sometimes. Mercury is generally too close to the Sun to be visible, but for a couple of weeks every couple of months, it is far enough away - to be visible either right before sunrise or right after sunset. I recommend the open-source Stellarium planetarium program to know when it will be visible. Today is Sunday, September 7, 2014. Tonight, Mercury may be visible low on the horizon just a little south of west immediately after the Sun sets.

It depends on the time of the year, your location, and clear skies. All seven planets are visible with the naked eye but Uranus and Neptune appear quite faint and Mercury is only visible at sunrise or sunset.
