The color characteristics of the earth-moon libration clouds
The OSO-6 Zodiacal Light experiment has provided evidence for the backscatter of light from the Earth-Moon libration regions at 5000 A. Additional measured data at 4000 A and 6100 A show similar characteristics. The combined three-color data lead to libration region color indices slightly bluer than the average surrounding sky background. The differential b-v for the L4 region is approximately -0.05.
