Balloon observations of auroral X-rays using different detector systems were carried out twice over Esrange, Sweden, in November and December 1982,in order to examine spatial and temporal characteristics of the energetic component of auroral electrons. One detector is a telescope system consisting of four scintillation counters whose fields of view are different with each other as well as with the viewing directions. It is shown from the first flight carrying the telescope system that a limited illuminating region of auroral X-rays coincides with that of visual aurora. The other is the so-called pinhole camera and a shot of X-ray image detected by a thin NaI (T1...
