Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 327 Issued at 2200Z on 23 Nov 2006

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 22/2100Z to 23/2100Z: Solar activity has been very low. LASCO imagery shows a CME on the Southwest limb at 23/1331Z. Plane of sky speed is approximately 550 km/s. This event appears to originate from the backside and is not expected to be geoeffective.

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

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 22/2100Z to 23/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet to active with one period of minor storming. This activity is due to a recurrent coronal hole high speed stream rotating into a geoeffective position.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to range from quiet to active from 24 – 26 November. There is the possibility of isolated periods of minor storming for the entire forecast period.
