how do native speakers say this?
Below is a direct translation from Chinese(very commonly used in Chinese).I just wonder if a more authentic way of saying that in English exists.
"The sky has turned bright". We should get up and.....
"The sky has turned dark/black". We'd better go home....
Would you possibly just say "It's bright now" or "It's dark now"?

If you're talking about the times around sunrise and sunset, then I would say "It's light/getting light. We should get up and ..." or "It's dark/getting dark now. We'd better go home ..."

Please remember to make your thread titles have relevance to your question so that we can differentiate between the different threads. A good title for this would have been "The sky has turned bright".
