Photometric Axis Measurements of the Zodiacal Light at Large Elongations

  • H. Tanabe (a1), A. Takechi (a1) and A. Miyashita (a1)

Extract

Measurement of the position of the photometric axis of the zodiacal light at large elongations (90 ° < λ − λ < 270°; λ:ecliptic longitude, λ: ecliptic longitude of the sun) provides information about the spatial distribution of the interplanetary dust outside the orbit of the Earth. However, modern photoelectric measurements in this part are scarce, except for the Gegenschein region, because of the observational difficulty due to faintness of this part of the zodiacal light.
