STANDING COMMETTEE ON OBSERVATIONAL ACTIVITIES
To evaluate the present status of the auroral program, all participating
groups are asked to send reports to the National Co-ordinator. Only one
conmunication on auroral observations has been received since Bulletin No.4
was issued; thus the co-ordinator has little information of current acti-
vities across the country. No requests have been made for assistance in
establishing new programs nor is there any indication that existing
programs are being actively continued.
In order to let our members know of the amount and type of aurora). observing
across Canada, I propose that two representatives from each Centre prepare
a summary, outlining the extent of aurora observing in their area; these
will be shown at the General Assembly in Montreal, May 19-21.
An excellent pictorial and descriptive report of an auroral display was
received from A. Ostrander, Toronto Centre, on the aurora of July 8/9, 1966,
as seen from Presqu'ile Point near Trenton, Ontario. His report is a most
artistic one and it will form part of the exhibit of auroral phenomena at
The Co-ordinator would welcome other contributions pictorial, descriptive
