Perez found her on the road outside her house, looking out for him. She’d shut the dog inside and she was jumping up at the window. It was almost dark. There was just a light grey strip above the horizon to the west.

Will below picture be a depiction of a light strip above the horizon?


Thank you.

    I see it like this, although with a greyer/paler light. The author is describing twilight.

    A couple pf pages after this : It was completely dark now but the sky had cleared and there was a moon. Suggesting it was cloudy when the light grey strip was seen.
