Abstract

The UVX experiment has resulted in confirmation that the diffuse ultraviolet background is low in intensity everywhere and that it is fairly uniform in intensity, both spatially and spectrally. There is no clear evidence that any significant portion of the moderate galactic latitude diffuse cosmic background originates in galactic plane starlight scattering from interstellar dust.
