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 179 Issued at 2200Z on 27 JUN 2000

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 26-2100Z to 27-2100Z

SOLAR ACTIVITY WAS LOW. THERE WERE TWO EVENTS OF NOTE THIS PERIOD. THE FIRST WAS A 27 DEGREE FILAMENT ERUPTION FROM NEAR N44W82 AT AROUND 27/1000Z. AN IMPRESSIVE CME WAS OBSERVED FOLLOWING THE ERUPTION, BUT THE MATERIAL DOES NOT APPEAR EARTHBOUND. REGION 9062 (S18E48) PRODUCED A C9/2N FLARE AT 27/1255Z. THIS REGION CONTINUES TO SLOWLY EVOLVE. NEW REGION 9064 WAS NUMBERED TODAY.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
SOLAR ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO BE LOW TO MODERATE. SEVERAL REGIONS ON THE VISIBLE DISK HAVE PRODUCED LOW LEVEL C-CLASS X-RAY EVENTS AND WILL LIKELY CONTINUE TO DO SO. AN ISOLATED M-CLASS FLARE IS POSSIBLE.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 26-2100Z to 27-2100Z
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD WAS MOSTLY UNSETTLED TO ACTIVE WITH ONE QUIET PERIOD OBSERVED BETWEEN 27/09 - 12Z. A HIGH SPEED CORONAL HOLE STREAM IS THE LIKELY SOURCE OF THIS DISTURBANCE.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
THE GEOMAGNETIC FIELD IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN AT UNSETTLED TO ACTIVE LEVELS THROUGH DAY ONE. QUIET TO UNSETTLED CONDITIONS ARE LIKELY ON DAY TWO AND THREE, WITH ISOLATED HIGH LATITUDE ACTIVE PERIODS.
