ABSTRACT
We report the first successful far­ultraviolet spectroscopic observation of a
filament in the Puppis A supernova remnant. We observed a position on the
eastern side of the remnant near the brightest X--ray region using the Hopkins
Ultraviolet Telescope during the Astro--2 space shuttle mission in 1995 March.
