Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 271 Issued at 2200Z on 28 Sep 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 27/2100Z
to 28/2100Z: Solar activity was low. Region 1110 (N20W31) produced
a C1 event at 28/0948Z. Region 1109 (N22W11) has decreased in both
areal coverage and sunspot count, but retains its E-type
classification and beta magnetic configuration.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low with a chance for a C-class flare.
