Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 323 Issued at 2200Z on 19 Nov 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 18/2100Z
to 19/2100Z: Solar activity was low. Occasional low-level C-class
flares were observed during the period. Old Region 1341 (N08,
L=055), which rotated out of view early in the period, was the
likely source for a C1 x-ray flare at 19/0127Z associated with a
weak Type II radio sweep and a non-Earth-directed CME. Region 1354
(S17E44) showed gradual spot growth in its intermediate portion and
produced a couple C-class flares including a C3 at 19/1955Z, which
was the largest flare of the period. New Region 1356 (N14E81)
rotated into view and was classified as an Hsx with an alpha
magnetic classification.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low
through the period (20 – 22 November) with a slight chance for an
M-class flare.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 18/2100Z to 19/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet through the period (20 – 22 November).
