dc.description.abstract Observations have been made of Comet Giacobini-Zinner over the wavelength interval 3000 A-5700 A and of Comet Halley over the wavelength interval 3000 A-10,000 A. A photoelectric spectrophotometer with a 40 A bandpass in the second order was used. Band fluxes from OH and CN have been obtained for Giacobini-Zinner. Band fluxes from OH, NH, C$\sb{2}$, and CN have been obtained for Halley. Swan band sequence flux ratios have been calculated for Halley and compared to resonance fluorescence theory and previous observations. The comparison suggests a reexamination of the molecular constants used in theoretical calculations and the validity of the statistical equilibrium assumption.
