Paper Abstract

The method is based on the representation that the solar light scattered in the earth's atmosphere under twilight conditions is localized at a certain height which increases with the solar depression growth. The main problem of the method of twilight probing includes separation brightness of secondary twilights from the total observed brightness of the twilight sky. A drawback in the available method of separating brightness of secondary twilights lies in their being based on these or those assumptions on atmospheric properties. A method is proposed to take into account brightness of secondary twilights which is independent or model calculations and based only on the observed data.
