Abstract

Abstract The diurnal and seasonal variations and the correlations with magnetic activity of the 6300, 5577 and 3914 Å emissions from the zenith at Scott Base are discussed. There is a marked twilight enhancement of 3914 Å emission. Most of the emissions at these wavelengths do not originate from visible auroral forms but from extensive glows that can only be observed visually or with all-sky cameras during major magnetic storms.
