By the 90 deg. elastic light scattering investigation and far field observation in the range of 20-800 centigrade, the relation between behavior of light scattering anomalies and evolution of nanodomain structures in lattice of barium sodium niobate (Ba_2NaNb_5O_15, BSN) crystal was clarified. The correlation between anomalies on the temperature curves of the elastic light scattering intensity and temperature transformations of nanodomains was studied by X-ray and electron microscope methods. Phase transition near 500 centigrade and movement in field of scattering light could be explained by appearance of a new incommensurate phase.
