Characteristics of the local interstellar hydrogen determined from PROGNOZ 5 and 6 interplanetary Lyman-alpha line profile measurements with a hydrogen absorption cell

Abstract : The flow of interstellar H atoms in the solar system was observed through resonance scattering of solar Lyman-alpha protons with two Lyman-alpha photometers on the Prognoz 5 and 6 satellites. Data collected at five different locations in the solar system were compared with a model of the interstellar H flow, modified by solar interaction. Five parameters describing atomic hydrogen of the local interstellar medium and two parameters describing the solar interaction were derived simultaneously to give a good fit of the upwind hemisphere. The solar Lyman-alpha flux at line center was determined along with the ionization rate of H atoms.
