Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 297 Issued at 2200Z on 23 Oct 2000
IA.  Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from  22/2100Z
to 23/2100Z:  Solar activity was low. Only a few small C-class
subflares occurred, mainly in Regions 9199 (N08W49) and 9201
(N17W08). New regions numbered include 9206 (N20E50), 9207 (S20E65),
and 9208 (S13E77).
IB.  Solar Activity Forecast:  Solar activity is expected to be low
with C-class activity in Regions 9199 and 9201. A small M-flare in
one of these regions is possible but is becoming less likely.
IIA.  Geophysical Activity Summary 22/2100Z to 23/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field ranged from quiet to active levels in response
to a high-speed coronal hole stream.
IIB.  Geophysical Activity Forecast:  The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled.
