About me, huh? Well, I don't like creating a ton of different profiles because I never remember to update them all. So I'll defer this section to http://www.timparenti.com/me/.

@Gnawme It's quite possibly a lacuna. Or perhaps just a very technical term. I don't know... but I guess that's why I'm asking!

@tchrist Right. We use sunrise to refer to the precise time at which the sun comes up from the horizon, as well as more informally to the period of time approximating that instant. That's the kind of thing I'm going for.

Please re-read my question; I want to describe specific events at specific instants in time, not the periods of time surrounding those instants nor the light from them.

comment “Thence” to allude to the past
Oh, I'm sure such usage isn't at all common. But it does appear to be non-zero historically.
