Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 328 Issued at 2200Z on 24 Nov 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 23/2100Z
to 24/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24
hours. The largest event of the period was a C1 flare from Region
1356 (N15E16). A new sunspot group was numbered early in the period
in the northwest quadrant, Region 1359 (N16W52). A CME was observed
off the west limb in LASCO C2 imagery at 24/0125Z, but after careful
analysis, there appears to be no Earth directed components.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be at
low levels with a slight chance for M-class activity for the next
three days (25-27 November).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 23/2100Z to 24/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field has been at mostly quiet levels with an
isolated period at minor storm levels observed at high latitudes.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at predominantly quiet levels for the next three days
(25-27 November).
