Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 019 Issued at 2200Z on 19 Jan 2006

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 18/2100Z to 19/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. A large filament eruption and associated CME was observed off the SE limb today at about 19/1300Z. The CME does not appear to be Earth directed. Region 848 (S19E24) continues in a slow growth phase, and was responsible for some low B-class activity.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low to low. There is a chance for a C-class flare from Region 848.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 18/2100Z to 19/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to continue at quiet to unsettled levels.
