A balloon flight to measure the sky brightness in the ultraviolet from 113,000 ft was successfully carried out. The experiment was designed to measure the sky brightness as a function of wavelength 2500 - 3700A and scattering angle. The spectrometer was programmed to make measurements at different elevation angles, and was rotated continuously in azimuth. In addition to this balloon flight, one was done in conjunction with a program in x-ray and gamma ray astronomy.
