A coordinated program of simultaneous eclipse observations from the earth, moon, and orbiting manned spacecraft, would produce a wealth of varied scientific data. Using a novel method that combines refraction and multiple scattering theory with observed twilight phenomena, this Paper obtains quantitative data on the brightness of the earth's halo at specific distances from within the terrestrial shadow-cone. 21 pp. Bibliog.

The paper was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 2003 that captured speeches, memorials, and derivative research, usually prepared on authors' own time and meant to be the scholarly or scientific contribution of individual authors to their professional fields. Papers were less formal than reports and did not require rigorous peer review.
