Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 312 Issued at 2200Z on 08 Nov 2006

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 07/2100Z to 08/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. New Region 923 (S05E71) produced multiple B-class flares in the last 24 hours. The largest of these was a B6 at 08/1233Z. The large leader spot in this new sunspot group is now visible. Region 921 (S06W66) produced a couple of low-level B-class flares today.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low. There remains a chance for an isolated M-class flare from Region 923.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 07/2100Z to 08/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be unsettled to active, with possible minor storm periods on 09-10 November as a recurrent coronal hole rotates into a geoeffective position. Quiet to active conditions are expected on 11 November.
