Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 14/2100Z to
15/2100Z: Solar activity has been at high levels for the past 24 hours.
The largest solar event of the period was a X1 event observed at
15/0148Z from Region 1748 (N11E51). There are currently 9 numbered
sunspot regions on the disk.

Geophysical Activity Summary 14/2100Z to 15/2100Z: 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
457 km/s at 15/1605Z. Total IMF reached 11 nT at 15/1317Z. The maximum
southward component of Bz reached -8 nT at 15/1124Z. Protons greater
than 10 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 23 pfu at
Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected
to be at quiet to unsettled levels on days one and three (16 May, 18
May) and quiet to active levels on day two (17 May). Protons are
expected to cross threshold on days one, two, and three (16 May, 17 May,
