Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 308 Issued at 2200Z on 03 Nov 2012
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 02/2100Z
to 03/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. The activity for the past
24 hours consisted of a few, low-level B-class flares. New Region
1604 (N08E48) was assigned and is a small bipolar region. All other
regions on the disk were quiet and stable.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low for the next three days (04-06 Nov) with a slight chance for a
an isolated C-class flare.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 02/2100Z to 03/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet during the past 24 hours. The ACE
spacecraft observed a solar sector boundary crossing at 1153Z.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be mostly quiet for the next three days (04-06 Nov).
