The direction of the upward light emission has different polluting effects on the sky depending on the distance of the observation site. We studied with detailed models for light pollution propagation the ratio $(b_{H})/(b_{L})$, at given distances from a city, between the artificial sky luminance $b_{H}$ produced by its upward light emission between a given threshold angle $\theta_{0}$ and the vertical and the artificial sky luminance $b_{L}$ produced by its upward light emission between the… Expand
