Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 124 Issued at 2200Z on 04 May 2007

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 03/2100Z to 04/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 953 (S10W44) produced several low level B-class flares during the past 24 hours. No spots are currently visible in Region 934 (S07W25).

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low to low, with a slight chance for an isolated M-class flare from Region 953.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 03/2100Z to 04/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit remained at high levels again today.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be mostly quiet on 05 May. Expect quiet to unsettled conditions, with isolated active periods, on 06-07 May due to a recurrent coronal hole high speed stream.
