Mini-EUSO will observe Earth night side atmosphere from ISS in the UV spectrum/light. The observed light consists mainly of light produced by airglow. We investigate the feasibility to observe airglow dynamics by Mini-EUSO detector. The investigation focuses on observability of two effects. Firstly on possibility to detect patterns created by atmospheric gravity waves induced by tsunami waves. Secondly on observability of magnetic storms in airglow light, where we expect decreasing light production in UV during storms.
