ABSTRACT
We present spectra of the diffuse far-UV (9001200 ) emission from a region near the Orion Nebula: theA
first high-resolution spectra of the diffuse background radiation. These observations were made using serendipitous
Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) observations and were only possible because of the strength of
the diffuse emission ( photons cm 2

) and the sensitivity of the FUSE instrument. Preliminary5 3 # 10 A
modeling suggests that the light is scattered starlight from the Trapezium stars, primarily v1
Ori C. However, a
