Emission from the terrestrial atmosphere

A spectrum of emission by the terrestrial atmosphere. In the spectral region above 700 nm, this emission is dominated by strong lines from the OH molecule. By observing in "windows" of low OH emission, such as those around 820 or 920 nm, the "noise" caused by the OH-emission is strongly reduced and it is possible to detect fainter celestial objects.
