B. Proton Events
An energetic proton event resulted from the X20 flare. Greater than 20 MeV particles exceeded event threshold at 02/2340Z, and reached a maximum of 1,110 PFU at 03/0745Z. The 10 MeV particle event continues in progress but is slowly decreasing. Greater than 100 MeV particles also exceeded event threshold, beginning at 03/0120Z, reaching a maximum of 5.4 PFU at 03/0740Z. The greater than 100 MeV particles decreased to event threshold after 03/1900Z.
C. Geomagnetic Activity Summary
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled.
