Is the zodiacal light intensity steady?

CONTINUED refinement of data on zodiacal light from OSO–5 (ref. 1) confirms our conclusion2,3 that the absolute value of both the surface brightness and polarisation of the zodiacal cloud varied by

Preparations and experimental details 1971-1974.- Reduction of the data.- Interpretation of results in terms of physical models.- Current developments and future plans.

Zodiacal light — A measure of the interplanetary environment

This paper reviews research related to zodiacal light and tries to give the status for the end of 1974.

1.1.9. OSO-5 Zodiacal Light Measurements 1969-1975

The Minnesota zodiacal light experiment on board OSO-5 was reactivated in July of 1974, after having been off for 1-1/2 years and operated successfully through August 1975 at which time the satellite

Satellite Observations of Intensity Variations of the Zodiacal Light

OBSERVATIONS of the intensity of the zodiacal light at 6530 Å have been made with a photometer on board the satellite D2A ‘Tournesol’. This satellite was launched on April 15, 1971, from Kourou

Polarisation in the night sky at 5,300 Å

WE have presented observations1 of the linearly polarised intensity, pI, at 5,080 Å (that is, polarisation, p × intensity, I), of radiation in the night sky. Contour plots of pI showed a displacement



OSO-B2 Satellite Observations of Zodiacal Light

OSO-B2 satellite zodiacal light observations at constant 90 degree elongation, measuring polarized component as function of time

Effect of the Solar Activity on the Brightness and Polarization of the Zodiacal Light

THE outer part of the medium between the Earth and the Sun can be investigated by space probes and observations of the Zodiacal light. Space probes provide information about the structure and

OSO-5 Dim Light Monitor.

The design, calibration, and operation of the University of Minnesota's experiment on board the satellite OS0-5, designed to measure zodiacal light, airglow, and lightning, are described.

F‐region airglow observations from Oso 5

Observations from the Minnesota zodiacal light and airglow experiment on Oso 5 indicate two F-region night airglow emissions of intensity up to 50 rayleighs in equatorial and midlatitudes. It is


The brightness and polarization of the zodiacal light have been measured from the satellite OSO-5, using two photometers of effective wavelengths 4180 and 6820 A. The satellite configuration

Radio propagation measurements of pulsed plasma streams from the Sun using Pioneer spacecraft

Radio signals at 50 and 425 MHz are sent from Stanford to spacecraft in deep space to determine the electron number density, structure, and behavior of the interplanetary medium. Total electron
