Paper Abstract

The Multi Spectral Solar Telescope Array (MSSTA) is a rocket borne observatory that utilizes an array of multi-layer and interference film coated telescopes to observe the solar atmosphere from the chromosphere to the corona, over a broad spectral range (VUV - soft x rays). The MSSTA is continuously evolved to incorporate new instruments, and to improve its ability to investigate specific topics related to the structure and dynamics of the solar atmosphere. We describe chromospheric and coronal observations recorded during the second flight of the MSSTA on November 3, 1994 at 1915 UT.
