Paper Abstract

Measurements of the night sky spectral radiance were made with a Fourier Transform spectrometer at angles between 1 degree(s) and 90 degree(s) elevation over the wavelength region from 2.5 to 10.0 micrometers . The LOWTRAN 7 and MODTRAN computer models were used to predict the path radiance from ground to space for the same angles as the measurements. The comparison between the measured and predicted path radiance is shown for both models.
