Here’s a bit of a nitpick, but I’m curious. Looking at the bulletins of different parishes mine has the Easter Vigil scheduled at 8.00 pm, another at 7.30 and a third at 7.00, yet all three state “earliest time for vigil Mass” or the like.
So I checked at the Naval Observatory website and got:
Sunset 7:33 p.m.
End civil twilight 8:02 p.m.
What’s civil twilight? And is that a more correct time than sunset?
