Photoelectric Photometric Study of Twilight in the Infrared Region

  • E. V. Gnilovskoi


Twilight, i.e., the aggregate of optical effects in the atmosphere in the transition period between day and night, is among the as yet imperfectly understood phenomena of nature. The scattering of sunlight in the atmosphere underlies the physics of twilight.
