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 308 Issued at 2200Z on 03 Nov 2000

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 02-2100Z to 03-2100Z

Solar activity was low. Only several minor C-class events were observed during the period from Regions 9210 (S27W30) and 9212 (N09W08). Slight growth occurred in Regions 9212 and 9218 (N19E12). No new regions were numbered today.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar activity is expected to be low to moderate.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 02-2100Z to 03-2100Z
The geomagnetic field was quiet. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached moderate levels.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
The geomagnetic field is expected to increase during the first day of the period to active conditions, due to the arrival of the full halo CME observed on 1 November. Minor to major storm levels are possible in the higher latitudes. Active conditions are expected to decrease by late on the second day and become predominantly quiet to unsettled by the end of the period.
