Vertical perspective, mercator, and tilted perspective projection images are presented which contain calculated dayglow, nightglow, and aurora. These images are discussed in terms of their structure's sources, which encompass composition variations, solar zenith angle changes, and changes in the path length experienced on going from disk-viewing to limb-viewing. Both a global thermospheric model (MSIS-86) and a global ionospheric model (the International Reference Ionosphere) are used to respectively specify neutral composition and the profiles of OI and OII.
