Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 269 Issued at 2200Z on 26 Sep 2009
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 25/2100Z
to 26/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 1027 (N24W21) has
shown little change and remains a simple beta group. Region 1026
(S34E05) is a spotless plage region today. No significant flares
were observed during the past 24 hours.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 25/2100Z to 26/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet. An increase in solar wind speed,
density, and temperature were observed from the ACE spacecraft
around 26/1130Z. These signatures are an indication of a possible
weak co-rotating interaction region.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled for day one (27 September) due to
effects from a coronal hole high speed stream. Predominantly quiet
conditions are expected for days two and three (28-29 September).
