Short summary
Using an all-sky imager, near-mesopause OH temperatures were derived from OH(6, 2) Meinel band intensity measurements. A limited comparison of OH temperatures with SABER/TIMED measurements performed by defining almost-coincident criteria of ±1.5° latitude–longitude and ±3 min indicated fair agreement between ground-based and SABER measurements in general. The difference of two measurements increased when the peak of the OH emission layer lay in the vicinity of large temperature inversions.
