LunarLight Photography Technical Information

Lunar Illumination Calendar for 2008-2009


The following predictions give the average scene luminance in photographic Light Value units. This is the surface brightness of an 18% gray card set facing the moon. Since these predictions must be general, they are based on the assumption that the moon is directly overhead of the observer at midnight Pacific Std Time (time zone -8) on the date indicated. They are also based on average atmospheric conditions near sea level, and are corrected for secondary effects such as Earth-Moon Distance, Earth-Sun Distance, or the opposition effect. As such, they are probably accurate within a stop or so. They are offered more for planning purposes than for detailed photographic calculations required to precisely determine exposure. See the pages giving more detailed predictions on this site for that kind of information, given as predictions for each hour around full moon. More specific predictions can also be made by request.

The column headed I/F gives the illuminated fraction of the lunar disk, which is what many people think of when they are concerned with lunar phase. The column headed P/A gives the lunar phase angle, which is the angle between the sun and earth as seen from the moon. A lunar phase angle of 180 degrees indicates New Moon phase, while 90 degrees indicates Quarter Phase, and 0 degrees indicates Full Moon. In practice, full moon is limited to phase angles larger than about 1.5 degrees, since anything smaller than that places the moon in the earth's shadow, giving an eclipse of the moon.


Midnight Zenith-Moon Light Value (LV)  
(time = 12:00 AM Pacific Standard Time on the date indicated)			
Corrected for E-M Distance, E-S Distance, & Opposition Effect
Average atmospheric attenuation conditions at 100 meters elevation ( k=0.2 )
I/F = Illuminated Fraction of the lunar disk
P/A = Lunar Phase Angle (degrees from full moon)
LV = Light Value (EV at ISO 100 film speed)
