Excitation diagram of the level populations with log10(N/g) as a function of the level energy in Kelvin with 1σ error bars. The least-squares fit is shown as a straight solid line and corresponds to a 5000 K thermodynamic equilibrium distribution. The disagreement between this line and the observations shows that the observations do not correspond to LTE conditions.
