Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 179 Issued at 2200Z on 27 Jun 2008

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 26/2100Z to 27/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. No flares occurred during the past 24 hours and the solar disk remains spotless.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 26/2100Z to 27/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was mostly quiet to unsettled. An isolated active period was observed between 0000 – 0300Z. Solar wind speed ranged from 590 – 675 km/s during the forecast period. The solar wind observations were consistent with a high speed stream from a favorably positioned coronal hole. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be mostly unsettled with a chance for isolated active periods on day one (28 June). Conditions are expected to decline to quiet to unsettled levels on days two and three (29 – 30 June).
