Results of stellar scintillation observations made from the orbital station "Mir" during horizontal displacement of the sighting beam at heights from 20 to 30km are given. The horizontal scintillation spectra are calculated from the photocurrent records. By comparing these spectra with the vertical scintillation spectra, the anisotropy coefficient h of the layered inhomogeneities of the air density is obtained (η~160).
