Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 22/2100Z to
23/2100Z: Solar activity has been at moderate levels for the past 24
hours. The largest solar event of the period was a M3 event observed at
22/2124Z from Region 2403 (S15W04). There are currently 2 numbered
sunspot regions on the disk.
Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is likely to be moderate
with a slight chance for an X-class flare on days one, two, and three
(24 Aug, 25 Aug, 26 Aug).
Geophysical Activity Summary 22/2100Z to 23/2100Z: The geomagnetic
field has been at quiet to major storm levels for the past 24 hours.
Solar wind speed, as measured by the ACE spacecraft, reached a peak
speed of 611 km/s at 23/1403Z. Total IMF reached 15 nT at 23/0740Z. The
maximum southward component of Bz reached -12 nT at 23/0731Z. Electrons
greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 207
Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected
to be at unsettled to minor storm levels on day one (24 Aug) and quiet
to active levels on days two and three (25 Aug, 26 Aug). Protons greater
than 10 Mev have a slight chance of crossing threshold on days two and
three (25 Aug, 26 Aug).
