Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 321 Issued at 2200Z on 17 Nov 2009
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 16/2100Z
to 17/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. A B1.5 flare occurred at
17/1259Z, most likely originating from the new emerging flux region
near N19E68.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
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 predominantly quiet for days one and two (18-19
November). Quiet to unsettled levels, with a chance for isolated
active periods, are expected late on day three (20 November). The
increase in activity is expected as a recurrent coronal hole
high-speed stream becomes geoeffective.
