Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 318 Issued at 2200Z on 14 Nov 2005

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 13/2100Z to 14/2100Z: Solar activity was at moderate levels. Region 822 (S06E55) produced two M-class flares: an M2.6 flare at 0421 UTC and an M3.9 flare at 1423 UTC. A Type II radio sweep was observed in association with the M3.9 flare. Region 822 is a magnetic beta-gamma spot group and has grown over the past 24 hours. The remainder of the disk was spotless.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be at moderate levels. If the region continues to grow, there is a possibility for major flare activity.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 13/2100Z to 14/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was mostly quiet to unsettled, with an isolated period of active conditions from 0000 UTC to 0300 UTC.

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