Ohzora was a Japanese satellite, launched by ISAS (Institute
of Space and Astronautical Science), that made optical observations of the
stratosphere and middle atmosphere, and in particular studied a geomagnetic
anomaly over the southern Atlantic that had been discovered by Taiyo several years earlier. Ohzora, which means "sky," was known as Exos-C before launch.
