Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 331 Issued at 2200Z on 27 Nov 2005

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 26/2100Z to 27/2100Z: Solar activity levels were very low. There are just two small sunspot groups on the visible disk. Region 824 (S14W20) is a small bipolar sunspot group that has shown no significant change over the past 24 hours. Region 825 (S03W10) is a small decaying alpha spot group. No significant activity was observed on the solar disk or limb.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to continue at very low levels. Isolated B-class flares are possible from Region 824. Two new small active regions are rotating into view on the east limb, which may slightly boost activity levels.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 26/2100Z to 27/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet. Solar wind speed gradually increased from 320 km/s to near 420 km/s by the end of the period. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was a high levels again today.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled with isolated active periods.
