For the purposes of atmospheric correction of satellite images the task of estimation of the distance from the center of a cloud gap is considered, at which the effect of clouds is negligible. The Monte Carlo method with backward scheme is used. The value of the gap radius is found, at which the effect of clouds changes the received radiance by 10%. Dependences of received radiance on the gap radius are found and explained.
