It can be seen mainly in the western sky after sunset and in the eastern sky before sunrise, making the sky look a little brighter than the midnight sky. The difference is barely noticeable when viewed from an urban setting, where light pollution from street lights, house lights, billboards, etc.
The meaning and origin of the expression: The darkest hour is just before the dawn
Rather, it is the Moon that particularly affects the brightness of the night sky. During the two weeks following a new moon, it can be seen after sunset — but not before sunrise. At such time, it is darker before dawn simply because the moon cannot be seen.
After the middle of the lunar month, the moon will also be seen in the sky before sunrise, so that the hours just after sunset will be the darkest. Just before sunrise the ground has cooled for the longest period possible, so the temperature will then feel coldest compared to the beginning or middle of the night.
