Welcome to MANGO

The Midlatitude Allsky-imaging Network for GeoSpace Observations (MANGO) is a collection of all-sky cameras and Fabry-Perot Interferometers (FPIs) spread across the continental United States with the goal of imaging large-scale airglow and aurora features in multiple wavelengths and measure neutral winds and temperatures associated with the observed dynamics. MANGO is used to observe the generation, propagation, and dissipation of medium and large-scale wave activity in the subauroral, mid and low-latitude thermosphere. The network of seven imagers observing emission from the atomic oxygen at 630nm wavelength ('red line') was deployed starting 2014, later funded by NSF AGS award # 1452357. This network is currently being augmented through NSF DASI award #1933013 with a network of atomic oxygen 557.7nm ('green line') imagers in the western United States, along with four FPIs that measure both red and green line winds. The map below shows fields-of-view of all the current, past, and potential instruments. At completion, there will be nine green-line imagers in this network. These imagers form a network providing continuous coverage over the western United States, including California, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Arizona and Texas extending south into Mexico. This network sees high levels of both medium and large scale wave activity.
