Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 210 Issued at 2200Z on 28 Jul 2008

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 27/2100Z to 28/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. The visible disk is spotless. No flares occurred during the past 24 hours.

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

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 27/2100Z to 28/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet to active. Active to unsettled conditions were observed from 27/2100Z to 28/0900Z, associated with a slight increase in solar wind velocity (up to 460 km/s) observed at ACE. Activity declined to quiet levels for the remainder of the period.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet for the next three days (29-31 July).
