SDF Number 174 Issued at 2200Z on 23 Jun 2021
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 22/2100Z to 23/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours.The largest solar event of the period was a C3 event observed at 23/0707Z. There are currently 1 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low with a slight chance for a C-class flare on days one, two, and three (24 Jun, 25 Jun, 26 Jun).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 22/2100Z to 23/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 376 km/s at 23/0817Z. Total IMF reached 5 nT at 23/0713Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -4 nT at 22/2242Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 730 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on days one, two, and three (24 Jun, 25 Jun, 26 Jun).
