Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 13/2100Z to
14/2100Z: Solar activity has been at high levels for the past 24 hours.
The largest solar event of the period was a X3 event observed at
14/0111Z from Region 1748 (N11E63). There are currently 8 numbered
sunspot regions on the disk.
Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be moderate
with a chance for X-class flares on days one, two, and three (15 May, 16
May, 17 May).
Geophysical Activity Summary 13/2100Z to 14/2100Z: The geomagnetic
field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the past 24 hours. Solar
wind speed, as measured by the ACE spacecraft, reached a peak speed of
432 km/s at 14/1129Z. Total IMF reached 9 nT at 14/1806Z. The maximum
southward component of Bz reached -5 nT at 14/1128Z. Electrons greater
than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 213 pfu.
Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected
to be at quiet to active levels on day one (15 May), quiet to unsettled
levels on day two (16 May) and quiet levels on day three (17 May).
Protons have a slight chance of crossing threshold on day one (15 May),
have a chance of crossing threshold on day two (16 May) and have a
chance of crossing threshold on day three (17 May).
