The report is the result of a six month study of the problem of atmospheric extinction and sky brightness effects on the performance of the Baker-Nunn Camera System. This study included the construction of a special sky brightness photometer, the conduct of 30 days of observation in conjunction with the Edwards AFB camera, and the analysis of the results. Author
