Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
23 - 29 May 2016
Solar activity was very low on 23, 25, and 27-29 May with only
background flare activity observed. Low levels of solar activity
were observed on 24 May due to an isolated C1 flare from Region 2546
(S07, L=223, class/area=Cho/550 on 21 May) and on 26 May due to
isolated C1 flares from Regions 2546 and 2548 (N13, L=171,
class/area=Dsi/130 on 27 May). No Earth-directed coronal mass
ejections were observed during the period.
No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at
normal to moderate levels throughout the week.
Geomagnetic field activity was at quiet levels on 23 and 25-26 May
and quiet to unsettled levels throughout the remainder of the period
with an isolated period of active conditions observed on 28 May due
to coronal hole high speed stream influence.
