Abstract

Applying time-dependent corrections of the atmospheric diffuse light to the observed night sky brightness, we have determined brightness of the zodiacal light over the region 40° ≤λ − λ⊙ ≤;320ΰand − 20°≤β≤20ΰ. The resulting map of equal brightness contours has an angular resolution of two degrees, and exhibits east-west and north-south asymmetries.
