Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 035 Issued at 2200Z on 04 Feb 2009

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 03/2100Z to 04/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. The solar disk remains spotless and there were no flares observed during the past 24 hours.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 03/2100Z to 04/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was at quiet to minor storm conditions. The disturbance in the solar wind continued from yesterday. Observations from the ACE spacecraft reflect a possible CME signature associated with this disturbance.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled conditions for 05 February. Predominately quiet levels are expected for 06-07 February.
