Bug Description


I always was quite scrambled wich the sky brightness rendered by Stellarium due to the Moon light.

I found a paper here that formalizes the calculation of the sky brightness, anywhere in the sky, depending on the Moon's phase angle, Moon's elevation, distance between a point in sky and the Moon.

It may be worth considering this paper in Stellarium.

See :

Best regards
