Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 298 Issued at 2200Z on 25 Oct 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 24/2100Z
to 25/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 1117 (N22W02)
produced several B-class flares during the past 24 hours.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low with a chance of C-class flares from region 1117 or
Region 1115 (S30W64).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 24/2100Z to 25/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet for the past 24 hours. Solar wind
speeds observed at the ACE spacecraft remained at or above 600 km/s
for most of the period.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled on day one (26 October) due to
coronal hole effects. Days two and three (27 – 28 October) should be
at mostly quiet levels as the coronal hole effects subside.
