shki'a or shki'at ha-khama or shki'at ha-shemesh

The sunset in the west was beautifull that night when the sun went down:

shki'A = setting of something, sinking - in the right context it means sunset.

shki'AT = setting of

ha-khaMA = the sun
ha-SHEmesh = the sun

shemesh is the more commom word; khama is more poetic.

shki'a = shin-kof-yod-ayin-heh

khama = khet-mem-heh

shemesh = shin-mem-shin

shkiat ha-khama
שקיעת החמה

shkiat ha-shemesh
שקיעת השמש

ba-ma'arav = in the west

nifla'a = beautiful, wonderful (f. sing. adj.)

oto ever = that evening

ka'asher = when

shak'a = set, sank (3rd pers. sing. f., past tense - shemesh is f.)

The whole sentence:

ha-shkia ba-ma'arav hayta nifla'a oto erev ka'asher ha-shemesh shak'a
השקיעה במערב היתה נפלאה אותו ערב כאשר השמש שקעה
