Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 20/2100Z to
21/2100Z: Solar activity has been at moderate levels for the past 24
hours. The largest solar event of the period was a M1 event observed at
21/0948Z from Region 2403 (S14E23). There are currently 3 numbered
sunspot regions on the disk.
Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low with
a chance for M-class flares and a slight chance for an X-class flare on
days one, two, and three (22 Aug, 23 Aug, 24 Aug).
Geophysical Activity Summary 20/2100Z to 21/2100Z: 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
558 km/s at 21/0106Z. Total IMF reached 6 nT at 20/2151Z. The maximum
southward component of Bz reached -5 nT at 20/2118Z. Electrons greater
than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 9116 pfu.
Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected
to be at quiet to unsettled levels on day one (22 Aug), unsettled to
minor storm levels on day two (23 Aug) and quiet to active levels on day
