Comparison of the observed night-side airglow spectrum (black line) with OH synthetic spectra. The most prominent emission features at 1.27 and 1.58 µm are due to O2. The other features are the OH fundamental bands at 1.44 µm (2-0) and 2.80 µm (1-0). The 250 K synthetic spectrum (green line) is shown below the observed spectrum for the full range. Full details in A&A, 483, L29-L33, May 2008.
