SDF Number 126 Issued at 2200Z on 06 May 2017
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 05/2100Z to 06/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 2 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low with a slight chance for a C-class flare on days one, two, and three (07 May, 08 May, 09 May).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 05/2100Z to 06/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 386 km/s at 06/0149Z. Total IMF reached 8 nT at 06/0325Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -2 nT at 06/2002Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 613 pfu.
