Rather than cleaning Diffuse sky radiation up, it would seem more sensible to merge it with this sky background article. Rnt20 06:45, 7 October 2005 (UTC)

Image does not show airglow[edit]

The image on the page shows part of the Earth in broad daylight and the glow seen in the atmosphere is scattered sunlight, not airglow. It is inappropriate for this page and I shall remove it.

Remove OI and NaI[edit]

Sodium glow is mentioned in wiki and is unimolecular that is Na1 not NaI. OI is Iodine Monoxide also unlikely. Shjacks45 (talk) 22:36, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

Relevance of the dayglow image.[edit]

The image named "Dayglow" does not appear to have any relevance to this article since airglow is only seen at night. If no one can give me a reference for that image that makes it relevant to this article I will remove it. Dr. Morbius (talk) 05:09, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

In fact the nightglow image also appears to be irrelevant and I will remove it without a proper reference to back it up. Dr. Morbius (talk) 05:19, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Comet had to be behind airglow in photo.[edit]

The photo of Comet Lovejoy and airglow is stated on the Comet Lovejoy page to have been taken by Dan Burbank aboard the ISS. The comet could not be in front of the airglow as that would put it between the Earth and the ISS, which is in low Earth orbit. The photo's text has been edited to note that the comet is behind the airglow. (talk) 05:49, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

Experimental observation and SwissCube-1[edit]

This section is more about the capability of a specific student CubeSat, namely SwissCube-1. Therefore it should be moved into the SwissCube-1 page with a reference to the Airglow page, and not the other way round as it is now. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dpieroux (talkcontribs) 10:22, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Suggest that this article reference the article "Sky_brightness"[edit]

"Airglow" "zodiacal light" and "sky brightness" should all be cross-referenced. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:558:6045:FE:216D:E39:1EBE:FE0 (talk) 02:37, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Name of OH- ion[edit]

Should the Description section use "hydroxide ions" rather than "hydroxyl ions", since hydroxyl refers to the un-ionized functional group or radical? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:00, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
