Prove that dusk and dawn can be simultaneous. ‘This sounds like a dare Harry.’

As you get further from the equator, the day gets shorter (or longer, depending on the time of year), and the night gets longer (or shorter, correspondingly).  It follows that at some place on the Earth, the day is so short, and the night so long (or vice versa) that dawn and dusk occur effectively simultaneously.

I myself was thinking that we need two dudiobugtrons to solve this riddle. This was a hint. Or the answer. I think. Not that good at science and relativity.

It's possible you could find a frame of reference where both events seemed to occur simultaneously.  Even if they occurred on different planets.

That's great. I was thinking of two observers on opposite sides of the planet.
