Summary For November 25-December 1

Space weather reached minor levels during the last week. A category
G1(minor) geomagnetic storm occurred on November 26th. The cause of
this minor storm was a large solar filament erupting off the surface of
the sun on November 24th. This filament eruption produced a shock wave
that interacted with the Earthís magnetic field resulting in the minor
geomagnetic storm. For a list of adverse system effects related to
space weather storms, please refer to the NOAA Space Weather Scales.

Outlook For December 4-10

Space weather is expected to be at minor levels. Category R1 (minor)
radio blackouts are possible during the week.
