Abstract:

A system has been designed and built for optically detecting clouds at night. Based on a low light level television camera with a fisheye lens, the system can detect clouds either by moonlight or by stellar occultation. The system is integrated with a scheduling program for the Experimental Test System ETS of the Ground-Based Electro-Optical Deep Space Surveillance GEODSS system to allow operations on partly cloudy nights.
