SDF Number 221 Issued at 2200Z on 09 Aug 2021

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 08/2100Z to 09/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours. The largest solar event of the period was a C1 event observed at 09/0004Z from Region 2853 (N23E48). There are currently 1 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low on days one, two, and three (10 Aug, 11 Aug, 12 Aug).

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 08/2100Z to 09/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed component of Bz reached -5 nT at 09/0727Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 352 pfu.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on day one (10 Aug) and quiet levels on days two and three (11 Aug, 12 Aug).
