What makes sunset/sunrise so special?

What I'm trying to find is a formal explanation of what makes these two times of day so special for lighting.

Ok, colour of light for one. But I'm looking for maybe a more detailed explanation; Sun light (main light) vs skylight (fill light) ratios at different times of day. Types of shadows cast at different hours on typical subjects. I'm not really sure. Any pointers would help. Hope it's not a dumb question.
Thanks,
Christian.
