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 169 Issued at 2200Z on 17 JUN 2000

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 16-2100Z to 17-2100Z

SOLAR ACTIVITY WAS MODERATE. REGION 9033 (N24W77) PRODUCED AN M3/2B FLARE AT 17/0237Z. THE SOHO/LASCO C2 IMAGERY OBSERVED A CME DURING THIS TIME PERIOD. THERE WAS ALSO A 16 DEGREE LONG FILAMENT THAT DISAPPEARED BETWEEN 16/1621Z AND 17/1347Z WHICH MAY BE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS EVENT. TWO NEW REGIONS WERE NUMBERED TODAY AS REGION 9050 (S13E06) AND REGION 9051 (N16E61).
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
SOLAR ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO BE LOW TO MODERATE. ISOLATED X-CLASS FLARES ARE POSSIBLE FROM SEVERAL REGIONS INCLUDING REGION 9033, 9042 (N22E16) AND 9046 (N19E44).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 16-2100Z to 17-2100Z
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD WAS QUIET TO UNSETTLED.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD IS EXPECTED TO BE UNSETTLED TO ACTIVE CONDITIONS FOR THE FIRST DAY OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD IS FOR QUIET TO UNSETTLED CONDITIONS. ISOLATED ACTIVE CONDITIONS MAY BE EXPERIENCED ON DAY THREE AS A RESULT OF TODAY'S M3/2B AND CME FROM REGION 9033.
