Latest Airglow Stories
Space-weather researchers joined forces to design and build NORUSCA II in order to help expand the understanding of auroras and other atmospheric events.
A literal shot in the dark by imaging cameras on NASA's Cassini spacecraft has yielded an image of a visible glow from Titan, emanating not just from the top of Titan's atmosphere, but also - surprisingly - from deep in the atmosphere through the moon's haze.
Researchers at the University of Illinois have become the first to record an airglow signature in the upper atmosphere produced by a tsunami using a camera system based in Maui, Hawaii.
Data products from the Special Sensor Ultraviolet Limb Imager (SSULI) developed by the NRL Spacecraft Engineering Department and Space Science Division were officially transitioned for use in operational systems at the Air Force Weather Agency (AFWA) on June 9, 2011.
The Special Sensor Ultraviolet Limb Imager (SSULI) developed by NRL's Spacecraft Engineering Department and Space Science Division, launched October 18, 2009 on the US Air Force Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) F18 (flight 18) satellite, observed first light on December 1, 2009.
Launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., aboard an United Launch Alliance Atlas V launch vehicle, Oct 18, 2009, the Special Sensor Ultraviolet Limb Imager (SSULI) developed by NRL's Space Science Division and Spacecraft Engineering Department offers a first of its kind technique for remote sensing of the ionosphere and thermosphere from space.
The Indian launcher Polar Space Launch Vehicle took off at 8:22 am - Swiss time.
ESAâ€™s Venus Express spacecraft has observed an eerie glow in the night-time atmosphere of Venus.
Data from Venus Express, which has been revealing new and crucial details about our closest planetary neighbour, will now be augmented by synoptic data from a coordinated ground-based observation campaign.
One year has passed since April 11, 2006, when Venus Express, Europeâ€™s first mission to Venus and the only spacecraft now in orbit around the planet, reached its destination.
- Having no light.
- Of or relating to the region of a body of water that is not reached by sunlight and in which photosynthesis is unable to occur.
