What time does evening start?

The evening, meaning the end of the day, doesn't have a fixed time. It is defined as that period between late afternoon and night; for some that means the period of dusk, or twilight, from sundown to darkness or near-darkness. When many people speak of the evening they think of around six pm, because that's the time the majority of people have finished their day's work. In another sense we might say, we're spending the evening with friends, or, we ate out yesterday...
Asked in Sunrise and Sunset Times

What causes the different colors at sunrise and sunset?

Earth's atmosphere contains a lot of water vapor and impurities, which is the cause of the sun appearing red when it rises and sets. When the sun is overhead, the light goes through a lot less air than when you look at it on the horizon. Red light has a longer wavelength than other colors and can therefore travel farther through the atmosphere. Most of those really pretty orange skies at sunset are unfortunately caused by pollution. White light coming from the...

Before 10 weeks the measurement taken is crown-rump length, from the top of the head to the bottom of the spine. This is accurate to within 3-4 days. After about 12 weeks several measurements are taken, head circumference, head diameter and abdominal diameter as well as femur length and...
