Analysis of the angular distributions of the color temperature and the pseudoemissivity, which were obtained from results of field measurements as well as simulations, showed that these parameters can be useful indicators for determining the optical state of the atmosphere, in particular, its optical thickness, as well as for selecting and identifying objects and phenomena observed in the atmosphere against the background formed by the scattered solar radiation.
