> 0700Z / 23 JULY AURORAL ACTIVITY SYNOPSIS:
>
> Auroral activity was sporadically unsettled over the last 24
>hours. Very unsettled solar wind conditions contributed to the sporadically
>enhanced high-latitude activity. At the time of this writing, solar wind
>magnetic fields have increased in magnitude, but thus far solar wind
>conditions have not been quite favorable enough to generate very frequent
>substorming.
> Conditions are being monitored closely, but it appears as though most
>of the activity will remain confined to the higher latitudes. The current
>phase of the moon (just past first quarter) will also hamper attempts to view
>activity. Nothing significant is anticipated yet, although there is a
>slight outside chance conditions could yet become more favorable.
>
> 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 **
