    How the night is so dangerous in the Minecraft, knowing just when twilight is coming can be important information for players' survival.

    Players who wish to explore the vast and dangerous biomes of the  Minecraft , they'll first want to familiarize themselves with the game's day and night cycles. Since nighttime can be incredibly dangerous, especially for new players, knowing the time and how long daylight will last is crucial for any Minecraft player.


    While the game allows players to build various light sources such as torches and the next addition of glow blocks from the Minecraft in the Java edition, nighttime is still an incredibly dangerous time for gamers. 

    Without proper beds and sleep cycles, players will have no respawn and will be harassed by dangerous flying creatures called Phantoms after about three days of non-stop play. So knowing when night is about to fall can be the ticket to survival.


    With the huge maps that the Minecraft generates for each seed, players know they can't explore everything they want to see in just one in-game day or 20 minutes of real time. 

    the day in  Minecraft  lasts 10 minutes, while night reigns for about 7 minutes. Days start at 6am with a brief sunrise lasting around 23 seconds. After that, the sun reaches its highest point in the sky at five minutes.

    After 10 minutes and 28 seconds, players can now use a bed to sleep at night. Midnight corresponds to 15 real-world minutes after the start of the day, and the sun will begin to rise at 20 minutes, signaling the start of the next day.

    • 0:00 Minecraft Day Start
    • 0:23 End of sunrise
    • 5:00 noon
    • 9:41 sunset
    • 10:28 Players can sleep all night in beds.
    • 10:52 The sun is no longer visible
    • 11:32 the night begins
    • 15:00 midnight
    • 18:47 Sunrise
    • 19:06 The sun is visible.
    • 19:30 The moon sets.


    Fortunately, there is a way to tell the time on the Minecraft , so players don't need to get creative and make their own timekeeping devices like in Valheim . Players can easily make a clock with just two ingredients. A watch requires 1 Redstone Powder and 4 Gold Ingots.

    A clock in Minecraft is read by observing the colors of the day sky switching to the night sky and vice versa, while changing to twilight and dawn. This is incredibly useful for those trapped underground, wondering if it's safe to leave their mines and step into the wild. 

    Clocks don't help at all, however, in Nether or The End do Minecraft, day and night do not exist there, and the clocks simply spin wildly, like compasses without a magnet.

    O Minecraft  is available for all major platforms.
