Sky Quality, Moon phase


The brightness level of the sky is strongly influenced by light pollution that comes from nature and human  activities. One of the major sources of  light pollution from nature originated from the moon’s reflection. The appearance of the moon in 8 phases will affect the Sky Quality Meter scale. Moon phase changes will cause fluctuations in the brightness at night. Changes in the level of sky brightness measured in SQM correlate significantly with changes in the width of the bright moon in the phases of the moon. In terms of changes in the brightness of the sky, SQM correlates nonlinearly towards changes in the phases of the moon.
