does "salida del sol" mean "sunrise" in english
Qfreed, good point about the difference between dawn and sunrise, but honestly I've seen them used in just about the same way most of the time, even if there is an actual distinction. Also I wanted to point out that Madrugada also can mean dawn besides that of amanecer and alba.
That is correct Gabrielle. "Salida del sol", also known as "amanecer"
Actually there is a technical difference between dawn (first light) and sunrise (when the sun rises above the horizon), but I've only ever seen it used when deciding when you can turn the headlights off on your car.
sunrise=salida del sol
