      ** Aurora Watch In Effect **

      There not much in the way of solar activity tonight, but there is a
      bit of geomagnetic activity. The earth is inside of a high-speed
      coronal hole solar wind stream, and geomagnetic conditions have been
      getting up into the active category. No storms or aurora yet, but
      that is a possibility. Skywatchers in the higher latitudes should
      keep an eye out for aurora. Of the three sunspot regions visible,
      none appear to have the ability to generate a significant flare at
      this time.

      The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 40
      SFI : 111
      A index : 19
      K index : 3

      Solar wind speed : 574.7 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 2.4 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 1.9 nPa

      IMF : 5.1 nT
      IMF Orientation : 3.9 nT South

      GOES-12 Background X-ray Flux level : B1

      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 for the next three
      days (30 November - 2 December).

      Geomagnetic activity forecast :
      The geomagnetic field is expected to be unsettled to active for the
      next three days (29 November - 2 December) due to persistence from
      currently enhanced solar wind and the onset of effects from a
      favorably positioned coronal hole.

      Recent significant solar flare activity :
      None
