Title Night-sky brightness at observatories and sites. Type Journal Article
Year 1989 Publication Publ Astron Soc Pac Abbreviated Journal (up)
Volume 101 Issue Pages 306-329
Keywords Skyglow
Abstract A model previously constructed for night-sky brightness calculations has been modified to allow for the curvature of the earth. The model has been applied to calculate the brightness at the following observatories: Mount Wilson, Lick, Mount Palomar, Kitt Peak, Sacramento Peak, Mauna Kea, McDonald, San Pedro Martir, Mount Hopkins, Mount Lemmon, Lowell (Mars Hill), Lowell (Anderson Mesa), Fick, Iowa, Van Vleck, David Dunlap, Anglo-Australian, Haute Provence, and Cerro Tololo. Calculations have also been carried out for the following prospective observatory sites: Junipero Serra, Mount Graham, Charleston Peak, Wheeler Peak, Miller Peak, San Benito Mountain, Lowell (Hutch Mountain), Lowell (Saddle Mountain), and South Baldy (New Mexico). The model is extended to calculate magnitudes in the B photometric band.

Title Model for Artificial Night-Sky Illumination. Type Journal Article
Year 1986 Publication Publ Astron Soc Pac Abbreviated Journal (up)
Volume 98 Issue 601 Pages 364-375
Keywords Skyglow
Abstract A model has been constructed to allow calculation of the night-sky brightness caused by a city at its center and outside the city, and at arbitrary zenith distances. A circular city of uniform brightness is assumed, with the total brightness proportional to the population. Molecular scattering and aerosol scattering are included, with the amount of aerosols being an adjustable parameter, and different scale heights being adopted for molecules and aerosols. The reflectivity of the ground and the fraction of light radiated above the horizontal are taken as parameters. Applications are given to several cities, to the general population-distance relations, to brightness-distance relations, and to the city center brightness-population relations

Title The effects of urban lighting on the brightness of the night sky Type Journal Article
Year 1977 Publication Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific Abbreviated Journal (up)
Volume 89 Issue 529 Pages
Keywords Skyglow
Abstract A new study of urban lighting and its effect on the brightness of the night sky indicates: (1) The total light output of cities of similar economic development is at least approximately proportional to their populations. (2) The artificial illumination of the night sky at 45 ° altitude in the direction of the illuminating city varies as I∝ D¯²⁵ .(3) The distance at which cities of a given population produce a brightening of the sky of 0.2 magnitude at 45° altitude toward the city varies as P∝ D2.5 .
