Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 298 Issued at 2200Z on 24 Oct 2000
IA.  Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from  23/2100Z
to 24/2100Z:  Solar activity was low. Only a few small C-class flares
occurred. The most interesting event was a long-duration C2 which
peaked at 24/0932 UTC. Optical observations suggest that the source
of this event was beyond the southeast limb.
IB.  Solar Activity Forecast:  Solar activity is expected to be low.
IIA.  Geophysical Activity Summary 23/2100Z to 24/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet to active. The coronal hole
disturbance of the past day appears to be coming to an end.
IIB.  Geophysical Activity Forecast:  The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled.
