Read the analog value of the light sensor. It return a valure in the 0 - 1023 range.

to:

Reads the intensity of light hitting the light sensor as a 10-bit number. This means that it will map input voltages between 0 and 5 volts into integer values between 0 and 1023. This yields a resolution between readings of: 5 volts / 1024 units or, .0049 volts (4.9 mV) per unit.
