Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 013 Issued at 2200Z on 13 Jan 2006

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 12/2100Z to 13/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. A nine degree disappearing solar filament centered at S05W19 occurred at approximately 12/2340Z as seen from H-alpha and EIT imagery. A Type II radio sweep began at 13/0004Z with an estimated shock speed of approximately 500 km/sec. LASCO C2 imagery showed a CME on the west limb beginning at 13/0054Z which does not appear to be Earth directed. No sunspots are visible on the disk.

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

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 12/2100Z to 13/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled.
