Telescopes are placed on spacecrafts to avoid the effects of the Earth\$\textbackslash{}backslash\$natmosphere on astronomical observations (turbulence, extinction ... ).\$\textbackslash{}backslash\$nAtmospheric effects however may subsist when satellites are launched in\$\textbackslash{}backslash\$nlow orbits, typically mean altitudes of the order of 700 km. We will\$\textbackslash{}backslash\$npresent first in this paper how we are able to estimate the mean Earth\$\textbackslash{}backslash\$nradiation flux when we consider temperature housekeeping data recorded\$\textbackslash{}backslash\$nwith a specific space solar mission having this orbit property. We will\$\textbackslash{}backslash\$nshow after how some solar parameters extracted from images recorded with\$\textbackslash{}backslash\$nthe on-board telescope are correlated with the Earth atmospheric\$\textbackslash{}backslash\$nradiation flux. We will also present how we find the limits of the South\$\textbackslash{}backslash\$nAtlantic Anomaly from affected images.
