Abstract : Certain optical measurements of the atmosphere were made on 21 June 1958, over central Minnesota. Data were recorded from daybreak to midmorning during the time four balloons carrying optical instrumentation were floating at a higher altitude. The sky luminance distribution is recorded as it varied with altitude, zenith angle, and azimuth with respect to the sun. (Author)
