Begin  Max  End  Rgn   Loc   Xray  Op 245MHz 10cm   Sweep
None
B. Proton Events
None
C. Geomagnetic Activity Summary
The geomagnetic field was at quiet to active levels. A slow, yet steady, increase in the solar wind speed along with intermittent periods of southward Bz allowed for the active periods seen today.
