Geophysical 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.

C. Geomagnetic Activity Summary
The geomagnetic field has been at severe storm levels. A shock passed the ACE spacecraft at 31/0023 UT and subsequently reached Earth's magnetic field at 31/0051. The storm developed after that time and reached maximum intensity after 31/0900 UT. It has continued into the later hours of the UT days. Dynamic auroral displays were reported across the United States with especially dynamic displays reported in Arizona, west Texas and California. The solar proton event that began at 29/1000 UT was declared over at 01/0600 UT.
