GILL Viewing Conditions

The Canopus MPA instruments provide high resolution outputs, which except for the MPA at Gillam Man., are not routinely collected. Using experimental software, raster scan images of these data for Jan 9-11, 1997 have been created. Note that from Gillam only a portion of the auroral oval may be seen at any one time. The notes below provide summary information regarding these images.
