    All remains quiet tonight. Actually, those four words could just about suffice for the entire report! Outside of the solar wind density being a bit higher

      All remains quiet tonight. Actually, those four words could just
      about suffice for the entire report! Outside of the solar wind
      density being a bit higher than I might expect to see, there's nothing
      noteworthy in the way of solar activity happening. There are three
      numbered sunspot regions visible, but none of them appear to have the
      potential for generating a significant flare at this time. By far the
      most intriguing thing happening is the appearance of Comet Bradfield
      in the SOHO C3 coronagraph images. Drop by the SOHO website and take
      a peek. It's quite impressive!

      The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 92
      SFI : 109
      A index : 12
      K index : 2

      Solar wind speed : 361.5 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 5.2 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 1.3 nPa

      IMF : 6.0 nT
      IMF Orientation : 0.6 nT South

      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. Isolated C-class events are
      likely from Region 596.

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

      Recent significant solar flare activity :
      None
