Light of the Night Sky (Lumiere du Ciel Nocturne)

Abstract

The light of the night sky includes several components which spread all over the celestial sphere. These light components are terrestrial (airglow), interplanetary (zodiacal light), galactic integrated starlight, diffuse galactic light) and extragalactic (extragalactic background light). Thus the study of nature of each light source, covering large distance, is pursued in different fields of astronomy. However, the techniques of measurement for respective components are similar and the knowledge of other lights is indispensable even in the study of a particular component.
