For thou hast been by day my sun,
And thou wilt be by night my rest.

In science:

We discarded observations for nights with a relative variation of αt greater that 1% because they might have been affected by clouds; this requirement removes 15 to 30 % of the nights.
Improved Photometric Calibration of the SNLS and the SDSS Supernova Surveys
We also discarded nights displaying a zero point that is significantly lower (by more than 0.05 mag) than the average zero point observed in a 10-night rolling average.

Comparisons of the reconstructed day and night positions of the AV hot spot show that its position is stable to within ±0.3% in radius between night and day, and indicate that the vertex resolution for a point source differs by no more than ±1.26 cm between night and day.
Electron Energy Spectra, Fluxes, and Day-Night Asymmetries of $^{8}$B Solar Neutrinos from the 391-Day Salt Phase SNO Data Set
The day-night asymmetries of the background rates are determined by combining the calculated asymmetry of each individual data run.
