      I'm watching new sunspot region 865 closely. One, because around
      solar minimum, there's precious little to watch! Secondly, however,
      and more importantly, is what's happening to the background X-ray
      Flux. After being in essentially a flat-line for quite a while, it's
      showing signs of activity. I'm going to be very interested to see if
      this sunspot region starts growing. I'm looking for the X-class flare
      that the sun has a habit of generating right at solar minimum. It's
      far too soon to tell yet, though.

      The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 11
      SFI : 79
      A index : 7
      K index : 1

      Solar wind speed : 371.6 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 2.8 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 0.6 nPa

      IMF : 4.6 nT
      IMF Orientation : 0.9 nT South

      GOES-12 Background X-ray Flux level : A6

      Conditions for the last 24 hours :
      No space weather storms were observed for the past 24 hours.

      Forecast for the next 24 hours :
      No space weather storms are expected for the next 24 hours.

      Solar activity forecast :
      Solar activity is expected to be very low to low. C-class flares are
      possible in Region 865.

      Geomagnetic activity forecast :
      The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled.

      Recent significant solar flare activity :
