Abstract

The first photographs of the OH airglow we took during a lunar eclipse revealed large (20–30-km) east–west waves from horizon to horizon which drifted northward at 10–15 m/sec. These waves were not typical of the ripples we have found to be well-correlated with lower lunar transit.

Correlation of ripple events with lower lunar transit (LLT), based on pre-1975 data when this result was found. Most data are from a continuous 4.5-month observing run in Hawaii using four IR cameras of 24 × 36° FOV. No ripples have been found more than 3 h from LLT.

All-sky photographs of OH wave structures during the 5–6 July 1982 lunar eclipse from west of Albuquerque N.M. The Milky Way dominates the center of the photos and lies in the north–south direction from top to bottom. The eclipsed moon is east (left) of the bright southern Milky Way clouds. City glow over Albuquerque burns out the eastern horizon. Low-lying clouds over the city, strongly illuminated from below appear, in the low northeast sky. Times for this photo sequence run from left to right. (See text for further discussion.)
