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.

Begin  Max  End  Rgn   Loc   Xray  Op 245MHz 10cm   Sweep
None
B. Proton Events
The greater than 10 MeV proton event that began at 10/2045 utc, reached a tentative maximum of 91 pfu at 11/0530 UTC. The flux is slowly declining.
C. Geomagnetic Activity Summary
The geomagnetic field was at unsettled to active levels, due to a high speed solar wind stream.
