Images are presented containing calculated dayglow, nightglow, and aurora in the following projections: vertical perspective, mercator, and tilted perspective. Vertical projections produce images as would be seen by a horizon-to-horizon imaging system while tilted projections display a portion of such images. The software being developed to produce images in the above and other projections is being used to analyze optical imaging data from satellites such as Dynamics Explorer and to make predictions in support of sensor design and theoretical studies related to remote sensing and characterization of optical backgrounds. Dayglow features to be addressed are OII 83.4 nm, OI 130.4 nm, and 135.6 nm (OI 135.6 nm plus N2 LBH 135.4 nm). Emission is characterized on a global scale using first principles calculations including photon transport where appropriate. The global thermospheric model MSIS-86 is used to specify neutral composition. The global ionospheric model, International Reference Ionosphere (IRI), is used to specify O+ density profiles needed in the calculation of OII 83.4 nm dayglow emission. Nightglow features to be addressed are OI 135.6 nm and OI 630.0 nm which arise predominantly from F-region O+, e- and O2+, e- recombination, respectively. Again, IRI is used to specify the necessary ionospheric information. The images presented in the above projections are discussed in terms of their sources of structure which include composition variations, changes in solar zenith angle, and changes in path lengths going from disk to limb viewing. A discussion is also included on construction of images in the various projections.
