Fit_guy --

It turns out that there are multiple definitions because we see it
differently at different latitudes and with different purposes.  Net,
it's different for pilots, seafarers and astronomers:
U.S. Naval Observatory
"Rise, Set, and Twilight Definitions"

The evening starts when you pick her up, it ends when the night starts
as the two of you arrive at your place.

I think it is Muslims who judge (traditionally) the beginning of
nighttime when you cannot distinguish a black thread from a white
thread and day begins when you can. I think that is right, I think it
is used to know when to end and begin fasting during Rhamadam (sp). I
don't know if that helps, but its just a bit of knowledge for you.
