Periods of >unsettled activity will remain possible over the next 48 hours. During >the mid to late UTC hours of 02 July or early on 03 July, the impact of a >full-halo coronal mass ejection that was observed earlier today in >association with a minor M-class solar flare is expected to result in >a minor but notable intensification of auroral activity. By then, the moon >will not be rising until the early morning hours after midnight which should >afford a better opportunity for observing activity prior to moonrise over the >high and upper-middle latitude regions. Although this is not expected to be a >particularly impressive event, it has an outside chance of producing >somewhat stronger levels of auroral activity and periods (bursts) of activity >that could potentially be a bit on the strong side. A middle latitude >auroral activity watch will probably be issued for this period of time (02-03 >July). > > NOTE: Northern high latitude stations are now experiencing adverse > seasonal twilight conditions. Regular reports from the higher northern > latitude stations will therefore cease until later this fall. > > ** End of Aurora Report ** > > >
