OGO-6 Observations of 5577 Å
There will be very little material discussed in this lecture that has not already found its way into the literature. Therefore, I shall content myself with the briefest meaningful review of the data obtained by the horizon scanning 5577 Å airglow photometer flown aboard OGO 6 and the interpretations we have put upon them. Most of my fresh remarks will have to do with the limitations in these interpretations and will amount to a list of caveats and comments about the meaning of the results we have obtained.
