The High Resolution Airglow and Aurora Spectrograph flew on sounding rockets in 1990, 1992, and 1994. The instrument obtained over 300 exposures (600 spectra) varying in length from 0.3 seconds to 10 seconds during the three flights. The first two flights observed the UV dayglow above the White Sands Missile Range, Las Cruces, NM. The instrument was flown a third time from the Poker Flat Research Range, Fairbanks, AK where it observed a proton aurora. We will present an overview of the instrument and discuss its calibration and its performance during the three flights.
