The brightness in the zenith was down to 21.24 mag per arcsecond2 at about 00:19 CET, 22.07.2023. 21.24 mag per arcsecond2 is about two times more bright than the natural clear and moonless sky. This is due to light pollution and the milky way in the zenith at this time. Another unusual strong source of light was airglow during this night, here seen as green diffuse patterns in the sky. Two times more bright means the sky is brightened by 100 %. Measurements were obtained with SQM-LU-DL, serial number 2030. Strongest sources of light pollution are the cities of Stuttgart and Ulm, about 60 and 50 km distant, respectively.
