foreglow (plural foreglows)

  1. The glow of light appearing in the sky preceding sunrise
    • 1894, The Gentleman's Magazine:
      But glorious, and educating, and inspiring as is the sunrise in itself in many cases, there is occasionally something very remarkable that is connected with it. Rare is it, but how charming when, witnessed, though till very' recently it was all but unexplained. This is the foreglow. It is in no respects so splendid as the afterglows succeeding sunset; but because of its rarity, its beauty is enhanced.
