      The solar wind speed has declined after the most recent coronal hole
      encounter. No significant geomagnetic activity resulted from it.
      There are seven numbered sunspot regions visible tonight. None look
      to have any real flare producing potential right now, but there is at
      least an outside chance for one. The most interesting news may be
      what's on the way. The massive plume in this picture erupted from a
      source that is located over the eastern limb of the solar disc.

      It will be interesting to see what shows up in a few days. Oh, and by
      the way, take a look at this one, too. The blue dot represents Earth.
      Impressive, huh?

      SFI : 172
      A index : 8
      K index : 2

      Solar wind speed : 390.8 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 4.9 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 1.8 nPa

      IMF : 11.9 nT
      IMF Orientation : 2.9 nT North

      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 low. There is a chance for an
      isolated M-class flare.

      Geomagnetic activity forecast :
      The geomagnetic field is expected to continue at quiet to unsettled
      levels. Isolated active periods are possible at higher latitudes.
