Shuttle Flight STS-53
University of Arizona

Arizona Airglow Experiment (GLO)

July 22, 1994
Phillips Lab, WSSI, USAF




These spectra were recorded by GLO during the flight of STS-53, December 1992. The complete spectrum is recorded simultaniously from a single column of gas. The dayglow spectrum was plotted with two verticle scales to illustrate the dynamic range. The short wavelength spectrum was compromised by a loss of sensitivity traced to the reflectivity of some of the surfaces. A substantial correction factor was required. The sensitivity was near zero through the 1300 Å region.
