Solar activity report

Any mentioned solar flare in this report has a scaling factor applied by the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC). Because of the SWPC scaling factor, solar flares are reported as 42% smaller than for the science quality data. The scaling factor has been removed from our archived solar flare data to reflect the true physical units.

Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 328 Issued at 2200Z on 24 NOV 1999

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 23-2100Z to 24-2100Z

SOLAR ACTIVITY WAS LOW. THE LARGEST EVENT OF THE PERIOD WAS AN OPTICALLY UNCORRELATED C9 X-RAY EVENT AT 24/1222Z. THE LIKELY SOURCE WAS ACTIVE REGION 8765 (L234) WHICH JUST ROTATED AROUND THE WEST LIMB. A PROMINENCE ERUPTED OFF THE WEST LIMB NEAR N45,A CORONAL MASS EJECTION WAS OBSERVED WITH THIS ERUPTION. REGION 8771 (N18W40) REMAINS THE LARGEST REGION ON THE VISIBLE DISK WITH 750 MILLIONTHS OF WHITE LIGHT AERIAL COVERAGE. A C6/1N FLARE OCCURRED IN THIS REGION AT 24/1930Z WITH MINOR DISCRETE RADIO EMISSIONS. NEW REGIONS 8779 (S09W27) AND 8780 (S11E51) WERE NUMBERED TODAY.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
SOLAR ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN AT LOW TO MODERATE LEVELS. REGION 8771 AND OLD REGION 8765 ARE STILL CAPABLE OF PRODUCING M-CLASS EVENTS.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 23-2100Z to 24-2100Z
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD WAS AT MOSTLY QUIET TO ACTIVE CONDITIONS WITH A SINGLE PERIOD OF MINOR STORMING AT 24/09-12Z. SUSTAINED NEGATIVE BZ IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MINOR DISTURBANCE.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD IS EXPECTED TO BE QUIET TO UNSETTLED WITH ACTIVE CONDITIONS DURING LOCAL NIGHTTIME HOURS.
