Abstract: Laboratory gas-phase photoabsorption cross sections of the
CO Cameron 0-0 band and the underlying pseudo-continuum have
been measured at a temperature of 147K and pressures
approximately 200 mbar, conditions similar to ambient in various
planetary and satellite stratospheres in the solar system. A
theoretical modeling program has also been used to calculate the
band's spectrum. Agreement between the theoretical and the
experimental spectra is very good. Models suggest that the
observations of the CO Cameron band using the Hubble Space
Telescope will be straightforward for Mars, but marginal for
