  • The sun creates light for the daytime and its light shines on the moon to make us see the moon from Earth. To answer your question directly the sun is the last light of a day before night time arrives.
  • Well...ignoring the possibility of cloud cover at the end of the day (a very real possibility), AND assuming that by "last" you mean "the moment before the Sun falls below the horizon"...well, it STILL depends on what you mean. *** For example: we can correctly adopt the position (as did the first answer) that moonlight is actually sunlight reflecting from the Moon, and that therefore "the last light of a day" is sunlight. *** On the other hand, we can equally-correctly adopt the position that moonlight, sunlight, starlight and other light (for example: the light of the Morning Star or Evening Star) are different "lights" (and, of course, so is light from each of the stars), and in that case "the last light of the day" would depend on the position of celestial bodies relative to your location at the end of the day and on ambient light conditions (i.e. how much does light "pollution" interfere with your view of various celestial objects). *** And there are additional possibilities I did not address. *** However: TYPICALLY we define "the last light of the day" as "the last visible light of the Sun, not reflected off of any object". Using such a definition, "the last light of the day" is always the last visible unreflected light from the Sun.
  • Since the Sun creates light and the Moon merely reflects some of the light from the Sun, I'd say that the answer is the Sun.
