One-dimensional photochemical diffusion model which includes oxygen-hydrogen-sodium atmosphere has been used to examine the relation between sodium and hydroxyl nightglow and the role of ozone in it. It is found that both emissions can be obtained on the basis of photochemistry. The following reactions Na + O3→ NaO + O2 and H + O3→ OH +O2 play key role in sodium and hydroxyl emission respectively. Further it is found that variations in both emissions are controlled by the variation in the concentration of ozone
