Dusk, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words

The Quenya words for dusk are histë (dusk), lómë (dusk, twilight; night), and undómë (twilight, usually of the
time near evening, not near dawn (that is tindómë))

The Sindarin word for dusk is tinnu (dusk, twilight, early night (without moon); starry twilight).

There are additional words for sunset.
