What is it sunset?

  • Sunset

  • Twilight

  • Darkness

Most people know that sunset is the time when the sun goes down. But did you know that the sun doesn't actually set? Instead, Earth rotates into darkness, giving us the illusion that the sun is setting. So what causes sunset?

Well, it's a combination of things. The Earth's atmosphere scatters sunlight in every direction, but blue and violet light are scattered more than other colors. This is why the sky is usually blue during the daytime. As the sun gets lower in the sky, the atmosphere becomes thicker and more dense.

This scattering of sunlight happens to a greater extent, and we see red and orange light more than blue and violet light. That's why sunset is usually a beautiful red or orange color. So next time you see sunset, remember that you're actually seeing Earth rotate into darkness!

Locust Grove and all the details!


Locust Grove is located in Robeson County, North Carolina, approximately 23 miles south of the North Carolina state capital of Raleigh and just over 10 miles northeast of the North Carolina state border with South Carolina. Situated along the banks of the Tar-Pamlico River, Locust Grove was founded in 1883 and was originally named Locust Groveborough. The town experienced a housing boom in the 1970s, and has since experienced a population decline due to the effects of the Great Recession and the relocation of many families to larger, more prosperous cities. Locust Grove's official name is Locust Grove City.

Locust Grove has a humid subtropical climate, with hot, humid summers and generally mild to cool winters. The closest states are South Carolina and North Carolina, both of which are just over 10 miles away from Locust Grove. The closest capital is Raleigh, which is just over 23 miles away. The population of Locust Grove as of 2017 was 2,550.


What time does it get dark?

As the sun sets, the sky slowly grows dark. For many people, this is a time to relax and wind down for the day. But have you ever wondered exactly when it gets dark? The answer may surprise you.

Did you know that darkness actually begins long before the sun sets? As the sun gets lower in the sky, its light has to travel through more atmosphere. This filters out some of the blue light, making the sun look redder. At the same time, shadows get longer and darker. So by the time the sun finally dips below the horizon, darkness has already begun to fall.

Of course, not all places on Earth experience darkness at the same time. Near the equator, the sun sets and rises almost directly overhead. This means that there is less of a difference between daytime and nighttime. Closer to the poles, however, the sun stays low in the sky for much of the year. This leads to longer periods of darkness during wintertime.
