Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 147 Issued at 2200Z on 26 May 2012
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 25/2100Z
to 26/2100Z: Solar activity was low. A few nominal C-class flares
occurred during the period. A CME associated with a filament
eruption was observed in LASCO imagery off the southwest quadrant of
the solar disk, but does not appear to be Earth directed.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low for the next 3 days (27-29 May).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 25/2100Z to 26/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux
at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels during the period.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be mostly quiet for the next 3 days (27-29 May).
