Far-ultraviolet spectra of Venus and Mars in the range 820-1840 A at ~4 A resolution were obtained on 1995 March 13 and 12, respectively, by the Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope (HUT), which was part of the Astro-2 observatory on the space shuttle Endeavour. Longward of 1250 A, the spectra of both planets are dominated by emission of the CO fourth positive (A1Π-X1Σ+) band system and strong O I and C I multiplets. In addition, CO Hopfield-Birge bands, B1Σ+-X1Σ+ (0, 0) at 1151 A and C1Σ+-X1Σ+ (0, 0… Expand
