A shadowy region of southern Aman

A dark, shadow-shrouded region, apparently at least partially covered by the ocean, that lay to the south of Valinor. Eärendil passed through Evernight, also called Night of Naught, on his epic journey into the West. The name only appears in Bilbo's Song of Eärendil, making it hard to identify with certainty. From its context in the poem, though, it seems to be a reference to part of the Shadowy Seas that formed part of the defences of Aman.
