The EUVE results, which cover a broader wavelength range than the ROSAT data, confirm this parchiness in the absorption and density of interstellar gas.
Indeed, such "windows" have enabled both ROSAT and EUVE to detect EUV sources from outside our galaxy.
In 1995 Mauche and his collaborators obtained even more spectacular EUVE data, this time on VW Hydri, the southern sky's brightest cataclysmic variable.
Randy Gladstone, a member of the EUVE research team at the University of California, Berkeley, notes that the extreme-ultraviolet glow stems from solar radiation striking the lunar surface.
Gladstone says that spectra of the moon's ultraviolet emissions, already taken by the EUVE but not yet analyzed, should indicate how much of the moonglow comes from reflected light and how much from fluorescence.
The EUVE can't detect very distant sources that glow in the extreme ultraviolet.
By conducting an all-sky survey of nearby objects that emit extreme-ultraviolet light, EUVE will in effect map the shape and extent of the bubble.
Beyond the activities of professional researchers, the EUVE program has strong ties to the educational and amateur-astronomy communities as well.
The catalog of objects surveyed by EUVE contains more than 600 sources so far.
It is the first nova observed in outburst with HST, EUVE, Voyager, and CGRO.
EUVE will also measure the opacity of the gaseous material between stars.
EUVE will carry four telescopes to chart about 95 percent of the sky to an accuracy of 0.
