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.

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

Solar activity was at low levels. There were numerous C-class flares observed during the period. The vast majority of these flares appeared to originate from source regions beyond the east limb (based on SXI imagery). Region 9715 (N05E30) produced a single optically correlated C6/Sf flare at 27/1552 UTC. This region has continued to show growth in magnetic complexity and areal coverage. Region 9715 remains the most noteworthy region on the visible disk. New Region 9717 (N06E78) was numbered today.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar activity is expected to be at predominantly low to moderate levels. Region 9715 has the potential to produce isolated M-class flares.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 26-2100Z to 27-2100Z
The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels. The greater than 10 MeV proton event (began 22/2320 UTC, max 18900 pfu at 24/0555 UTC) remains in progress although flux values have been oscillating across event threshold levels throughout the past ten hours of the period.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels. Isolated active conditions are possible during the forecast period due to a southern hemisphere coronal hole.
