Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast SDF Number 159 Issued at 2200Z on 08 Jun 2023
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 07/2100Z to 08/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours. The largest solar event of the period was a C7 event observed at 08/0459Z from Region 3327 (S16E15). There are currently 9 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low with a chance for M-class flares on days one, two, and three (09 Jun, 10 Jun, 11 Jun).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 07/2100Z to 08/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 381 km/s at 07/2234Z. Total IMF reached 10 nT at 07/2233Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -6 nT at 08/0353Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 144 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on days one and three (09 Jun, 11 Jun) and quiet levels on day two (10 Jun).
