Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 361 Issued at 2200Z on 27 Dec 2009
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 26/2100Z
to 27/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Two B-class flares
occurred during the period from Region 1039 (S27E31); the largest
was a B7.6 at 1139Z. Region 1039 has grown during the past 24 hours
and is currently a 7-spot Dso-beta group, with an area of
approximately 100 millionths.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low. There is a chance for an isolated C-class event from
Region 1039.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 26/2100Z to 27/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet for the next three days, with a slight chance
for an isolated unsettled period on day three (28-30 December).
