Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 265 Issued at 2200Z on 22 Sep 2007

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 21/2100Z to 22/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. There were no spots observed on the solar disk.

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

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 21/2100Z to 22/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was at quiet to unsettled conditions.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be unsettled to active on 23 September, with isolated minor storm conditions at high latitudes. The elevated activity is due to the continued influence of a recurrent coronal hole. Quiet to unsettled conditions should return for 24-25 September as the high speed solar wind stream subsides.
