Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 321 Issued at 2200Z on 17 Nov 2005

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 16/2100Z to 17/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 822 (S07E15) produced numerous B-class flares during the last 24 hours. The largest of these included a B5.8/Sf event occurring at 17/0143Z and a B6.6 event occurring at 17/0314Z. A slight growth in the number of sunspots was observed during this period. This region remains a beta-gamma spot group.

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

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 16/2100Z to 17/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet on 18-19 November. Quiet to unsettled conditions are expected on 20 November.
