Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 27/2100Z to
28/2100Z: Solar activity has been at high levels for the past 24 hours.
The largest solar event of the period was a M7 event observed at
28/1458Z from Region 2422 (S20W30). There are currently 6 numbered
sunspot regions on the disk.
Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is likely to be moderate
with a chance for X-class flares on days one, two, and three (29 Sep, 30
Sep, 01 Oct).
Geophysical Activity Summary 27/2100Z to 28/2100Z: The geomagnetic
field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed,
as measured by the ACE spacecraft, reached a peak speed of 410 km/s at
28/0018Z. Total IMF reached 5 nT at 28/1140Z. The maximum southward
component of Bz reached -4 nT at 28/0043Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV
at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 408 pfu.
Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected
to be at quiet levels on day one (29 Sep) and quiet to unsettled levels
on days two and three (30 Sep, 01 Oct). Protons have a chance of
crossing threshold on days one and two (29 Sep, 30 Sep) and have a
slight chance of crossing threshold on day three (01 Oct).
