Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
25 April - 01 May 2016
Solar activity was reached low levels this period. A total of seven
low-level C-class flares were observed through the week, four of
which were from Region 2535 (N05, L=124, class/area=Hax/60 on 24
Apr) and the remaining three were from Region 2539 (N16, L=084,
class/area=Eai/100 on 01 May). A pair of coronal mass ejections
(CMEs) associated with flare activity from Region 2535 were observed
in LASCO C2 coronagraph imagery at 28/0216 UTC and 28/0636 UTC, but
did not impact Earth as anticipated.
No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached
moderate levels on 25-30 Apr and was at normal levels on 01 May.
Geomagnetic field activity was quiet on 25, 28-29 Apr, quiet to
unsettled on 26-27, 30 Apr, and quiet to active on 01 May.
