Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 174 Issued at 2200Z on 23 Jun 2005

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 22/2100Z
to 23/2100Z: Solar activity was at very low levels. Region 780
(S08W14) underwent continued decay in sunspot area and activity was
limited to a single B-class flare. The remainder of the disk and
limb were quiescent during the period. No new regions were numbered

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

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 22/2100Z to 23/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field ranged from unsettled to major storm levels.
The storming conditions are believed to be due to a Co-rotating
Interaction Region, preceding the onset of a recurrent high speed
coronal hole stream.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at unsettled to minor storm levels. Isolated major
storm conditions may be possible during the period due to the
recurrent high speed coronal hole stream.
