Remote sensing of Jupiter's aurora from x-ray to radio wavelengths has revealed much about the nature of the jovian aurora and about the impact of ionosphere-magnetosphere coupling on the upper atmosphere of Jupiter, As indicated by the combination of x-ray and ultraviolet observations, both energetic heavy ions and electrons energized in the outer magnetosphere contribute to auroral excitation. Imaging with the Hubble Space Telescope in the ultraviolet and with the InfraRed Telescope Facility at infrared wavelengths shows several distinct regions of interaction: 1) a dusk sector where turbulent auroral patterns extend well into the polar cap; 2) a morning sector generally characterized by a single spatially confined auroral are originating in the outer or middle magnetosphere of Jupiter; 3) diffuse emissions associated with the Io plasma - spectroscopy has provided important information about the thermal structure of Jupiter's auroral atmosphere and the altitude distribution of auroral particle energy deposition, while Lyman alpha line profiles yield clues to the nature of thermospheric dynamical effects. Galileo observations at visible wavelengths on the nightside offer a new view of the jovian aurora with unprecedented spatial information. Infrared observations have added much to the understanding of thermal structure at all latitudes, the dynamics of the thermospheric wind system, and auroral morphology, and may hold the key to understanding the role of Joule heating in Jupiter's thermosphere. ROSAT observations have revealed soft x-ray emissions from Jupiter's lower latitudes as well as from the auroral zones, implying that energetic particle precipitation also occurs at low latitudes in regions magnetically linked to the inner radiation belts. In this review, multispectral observations of jovian auroral emissions are presented within a theoretical/modeling framework that is intended to provide some insight into magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling and its effects on the upper atmosphere.

The SOHO (SOlar and Heliospheric Observatory) satellite was launched on December 2nd 1995. After arriving at the Earth-Sun (L1) Lagrangian point on February 14th 1996, it began to continuously observe the Sun. As one of the instruments onboard SOHO, the EIT (Extreme ultraviolet Imaging Telescope) images the Sun's corona in 4 EUV wavelengths. The He II filter at 304 AË images the chromosphere and the base of the transition region at a temperature of 5 - 8 x 10^4 K; the Fe IX-X filter at 171 AË images the corona at a temperature of ~ 1.3 x 10^6 K; the Fe XII filter at 195 AË images the quiet corona outside coronal holes at a temperature of ~ 1.6 x 10^6 K; and the Fe XV filter at 284 AË images active regions with a temperature of ~ 2.0 x 10^6 K. About 5000 images have been obtained up to the present. In this paper, we describe also some aspects of the telescope and the detector performance for application in the observations. Images and movies of all the wavelengths allow a look at different phenomena present in the Sun's corona, and in particular, magnetic field reconnection. [less ▲]

The Airglow and Solar Spectrometer Instrument (ASSI) on the San Marco D satellite has obtained near-simultaneous measurements of solar irradiances and airglow emissions in the 200-7000 A spectral region. The satellite was placed in an equatorial, elliptical orbit on 25 March 1988, which permitted observations of airglow emissions in the 280-600-km altitude range at various local times. The instrument complement on the satellite provides an opportunity both for self-consistent examination of the excitation mechanisms of various airglow features and for constraining model parameters. An overview of the data obtained by ASSI is presented along with preliminary modeling results of the UV airglow. [less ▲]
