Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 309 Issued at 2200Z on 05 Nov 2005

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z: Solar activity was at very low levels. New Region 820 (S16W27) produced three B-class x-ray flares. This rapidly-emerging region depicts a relatively simple beta magnetic structure.

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

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z: The geomagnetic field ranged from quiet to active levels. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels again today.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at predominantly quiet to unsettled levels. Isolated periods of active conditions are possible on 06 November, due to a favorably-positioned coronal hole, which should move out of geoeffective position late in the day.
