Solar Activity Report for 1/29/05
- At this time, the Earth is inside of a coronal hole solar wind stream.
However, there hasn't been much in the way of geomagnetic activity
outside of isolated active periods, and no geomagnetic storms have
been observed. Aurora appear to be unlikely. There is one small
sunspot region visible, that being region 727. It doesn't look to
have the ability to generate a significant flare. That's about it for
The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :
NOAA sunspot number : 30
SFI : 86
A index : 20
K index : 3
Solar wind speed : 585.2 km/sec
Solar wind density : 1.0 protons/cc
Solar wind pressure : 1.4 nPa
IMF : 5.8 nT
IMF Orientation : 0.5 nT South
GOES-12 Background X-ray Flux level : A4
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.
Geomagnetic activity forecast :
The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to active, with isolated
periods of minor storming on 30 January from the residual effects of
elevated solar wind. Activity should subside on 1-2 February to quiet
to unsettled levels.
Recent significant solar flare activity :
