Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 292 Issued at 2200Z on 19 Oct 2007

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 18/2100Z to 19/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. No flares were observed. The solar disk continues to be spotless.

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

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 18/2100Z to 19/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was predominantly unsettled during the past 24 hours. There was a period of active to minor storm levels from 15-18Z. Real-time solar wind data from ACE show the continuing influence of a recurrent high speed stream throughout the day.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be mostly unsettled to active with a chance for minor storm periods for the next 24 hours (20 October). A decrease to quiet to unsettled levels is expected for the second day (21 October) and mostly quiet levels should prevail for the third day (22 October).
