Moon causes dimming even if below horizon

Bug Description


At 21:45, located at Helsingborg Sweden (approx N 56 E 12), looking east, I noticed that the stars went brighter when I was tilting up and - unsurprisingly - dimmer when I was looking down again.

I unchecked "Show ground" and noticed that it was the moon causing the dimming. But the moon was 10 degrees below the horizon. It shouldn't interfere with my presumed night vision.

I use Stellarium 0.12.0 on Fedora 17.

Best regards,

Pär Johansson

r9185 brings relief by accounting for landscape opacity in the sky brightness/eye adaptation calculation.
