  • Abstract We analyze the results of 2 years (2011–2012) of night sky photometry performed at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics in Potsdam-Babelsberg. This institute is located 23 km to the southwest of the center of Berlin. Our measurements have been performed with a Sky Quality Meter. We find night sky brightness values ranging from 16.5 to 20.3 mag SQM  arcsec −2 ; the latter value corresponds to 4.8 times the natural zenithal night sky brightness. We focus on the influence of clouds and… CONTINUE READING
