Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 025 Issued at 2200Z on 25 Jan 2009

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 24/2100Z to 25/2100Z: Solar activity continues very low. No eruptive activity occurred as the disk is spotless once again today.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity will be very low.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 24/2100Z to 25/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to remain quiet until late on January 26. A recurrent high-speed solar wind stream is then expected to usher in unsettled conditions for approximately 24 hours before quiet conditions return.
