The impact of the latest optical and electronic component developments on far uv rocket spectrophotometry is discussed. Results of some recent experiments studying earth airglow and aurorae are reviewed. It is shown that weaker spectral features can he measured in the region 1100 Å to 3000 Å than at any longer wavelength.
