Paper Abstract

Solar zenith angle dependencies of OI and N2+ emission brightness and analytical approximations of each emission brightness at 120 - 160 km altitudes for undisturbed atmosphere are obtained using the results of a series of MR-12 rocket experiments with the same type spectrophotometers. Results of the rocket measurements of daylit auroral brightness are presented. Features of altitude distributions of these emissions are shown and their differences from altitude distributions of brightness in undisturbed atmosphere dayglow and darktime auroras are given.
