Experienced an ughten recently?

Angkor Wat at sunrise

Ughten, an obscure word, means morning twilight, according to The Phrontistery.

The last time (and first time in 19 years) I was awake in an ughten I was observing photographers mounting their high tech, high-powered cameras in front of Cambodia’s Angkor Wat.  They were waiting to capture sunrise there. Here’s wondering if I could stand the cold in a Stonehenge ughten.
