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 162 Issued at 2200Z on 10 JUN 2000

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 09-2100Z to 10-2100Z

SOLAR ACTIVITY WAS HIGH. REGION 9026 (N23W39) PRODUCED AN M5/3B EVENT AT 10/1702Z. THIS EVENT HAD AN ASSOCIATED 550 SFU TENFLARE AND A TYPE II SWEEP WITH A SPEED OF 700 KM/S. REGION 9026 HAD BEEN IN A SIGNIFICANT STAGE OF DECAY SINCE YESTERDAY AND WAS AN EAO BETA GROUP WITH APPROXIMATELY 8 SPOTS WHEN THE EVENT ABOVE OCCURRED. OTHERWISE, ONLY MINOR C-CLASS EVENTS WERE OBSERVED DURING THE PERIOD. NEW REGION 9037 (N18E51) WAS NUMBERED TODAY.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
SOLAR ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO BE LOW TO MODERATE. REGION 9033 (N22E18) NOW APPEARS TO HAVE THE BEST POTENTIAL FOR THE PRODUCTION OF M-CLASS EVENTS.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 09-2100Z to 10-2100Z
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD RANGED FROM QUIET TO MINOR STORM. AT 09/2350, DATA FROM THE ACE SPACECRAFT DISPLAYED WHAT WAS PRESUMED TO BE THE ARRIVAL OF THE FAINT FULL HALO OBSERVED BACK ON 7 JUNE FROM THE X1/3B EVENT. AS A RESULT, THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD REACHED ACTIVE TO MINOR STORM LEVELS FROM 10/0600Z - 10/1500Z. THE M-CLASS EVENT DESCRIBED IN PART IA PRODUCED PROTON EVENTS AT GREATER THAN 10 AND 100 MEV FLUX AT GEOSYNCHRONOUS ORBIT. THE GREATER THAN 100 MEV CROSSED EVENT THRESHOLD OF 1 PFU AT 10/1750Z. THE 100 MEV PEAK FLUX WAS 1.6 PFU AT 10/1755Z AND DROPPED BELOW THRESHOLD, ENDING AT 10/1830Z. THE GREATER THAN 10 MEV PROTON EVENT BEGAN AT 10/1805Z AND IS STILL IN PROGRESS AT THIS TIME. THE GREATER THAN 2 MEV ELECTRON FLUX AT GEOSYNCHRONOUS ORBIT REACHED HIGH LEVELS.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD IS EXPECTED TO BE PREDOMINATELY QUIET TO UNSETTLED WITH THE CHANCE OF ISOLATED PERIODS OF ACTIVE CONDITIONS. THE GEOMAGNETIC ACTIVITY MAY INTENSIFY LATE ON THE THIRD DAY IF AN INTERPLANETARY SHOCK ARRIVES AT THE EARTH FROM THE M5/3B EVENT EARLIER TODAY. FURTHER ANALYSIS OF DATA, NOT YET AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME, IS REQUIRED TO DETERMINE IF AN EARTH DIRECTED CME IS IN PROGRESS.
