Paper Abstract

A model of interaction of energetic electrons with the upper atmosphere is proposed. Electron energy distribution function is found by the solution of kinetic equation assuming continuous energy losses for the electrons of primary flux. On the basis of the proposed model the calculation of number of the direct excitations of molecular nitrogen is performed. Estimated luminosity height profile of 3914 angstrom band is compared with experimental rocket ones.
