Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 095 Issued at 2200Z on 05 Apr 2006
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z: Solar activity was low. Region 867 (S16W26) produced two C-class flares; a C2.6 at 05/1307 UTC and a C8.1 at 05/1521 UTC. New region 868 (S07W06) was numbered today.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low to moderate. An isolated M-class flare is possible from Regions 865 or 867.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was at quiet to minor storm conditions. Minor storm periods were observed from 05/0900 to 1200 UTC and 05/1200 to 1500 UTC. Heightened activity was due to sustained periods of southward Bz coupled with an increase in the total magnetic field.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled with active periods possible on 06 April. On 07 and 08 April, quiet to unsettled conditions are expected.
