The 1997 reference of diffuse night sky brightness

Abstract : In the following we present material in tabular and graphical form, with the aim to allow the nonspecialist to obtain a realistic estimate of the diffuse night sky brightness over a wide range of wavelengths from the far UV longward of Lyα to the far-infrared. At the same time the data are to provide a reference for cases in which background brightness has to be discussed, including the planning for space observations and the issue of protection of observatory sites. We try to give a critical presentation of the status at the beginning of 1997.
