Abstract. In this short contribution the use of different sunspot numbers for the estimation of past solar and upper atmosphere conditions from historical and modern auroral observations realised by Schröder et al. (2004) is analysed. Moreover, some comments are made on the relationships between mean annual visual observations of the auroras at middle latitudes of Europe and the mean annual sunspot number during 1780–1829.

Keywords. Atmospheric composition and structure (Airglow and aurora) – Magnetospheric physics (Auroral phenomena, solar wind-magnetosphere interactions) – History of geophysics (Solar-planetary relationship)
