Despre Google Translate, "dispărând noaptea" este bine, doar Duolingo crede la altfel. Ce credeți?

Mulțumesc!

I am inclined to side with Duolingo on this one:

  1. dispărând noaptea = disappearing at night
    This refers to the timeframe when the action occurs, i.e. at night.
  2. dispărând în noapte = disappearing into the night
    This can refer to the timeframe when the action occurs, BUT I perceive it more as a figure of speech that emphasizes disappearing into the darkness of the night. I perceive it like this in both languages, but I'm only a native speaker of Romanian.
