While most of the nouns denoting parts of the day are used either with "at.." or "in the.." prepositions (in the morning / afternoon / evening / daytime; at nighttime / noon / night / midday / midnight / dawn / dusk / sunrise / sunset / sundown / daybreak / nightfall)
"daylight" and "twilight" seem to go beyond the dichotomy:
At daylight on the 7th of October 1813 he crossed the Bidassoa...
In daylight, he was almost approachable.
Let us walk with decency, as in the daylight: not in carousing and drunkenness; not in sexual impurity and promiscuity; not in quarreling and jealousy.
..legions of these delicate minute flies fill the air at twilight..
We are always living in twilight..
..farmers starting for Boston in the twilight..
So what's the difference between the three patterns: "at N", "in N", "in the N"?
