2. Shade within clear boundaries.
3. Refuge from danger or observation.
4. An inseparable companion.
5. A premonition of something adverse.
Area of darkness behind an opaque object that cannot be reached by some or all of the light coming from a light source in front. Its presence may be explained in terms of light rays traveling in straight lines and being unable to bend round obstacles. A point source of light produces an umbra, a completely black shadow with sharp edges. An extended source of light produces both a central umbra and a penumbra, a region of semidarkness with blurred edges where darkness gives way to light.
Eclipses are caused by the Earth passing into the Moon' s shadow or the Moon passing into the Earth's shadow.

2. The diffused light from the sky when the sun is below the horizon but its rays are refracted by the atmosphere of the earth.
3. The time of day immediately following sunset; SYN. dusk, gloaming, nightfall, evenfall, fall.
Period of faint light that precedes sunrise and follows sunset, caused by the reflection of light from the upper layers of the atmosphere. The limit of twilight is usually regarded as being when the Sun is 18ş below the horizon. The length of twilight depends on the latitude—at the tropics, it only lasts a few minutes; near the poles, it may last all night.
