      The Earth has exited the high speed solar wind stream mentioned in my
      last report, and the overall activity level has dropped off
      accordingly. There is, however, the potential for some interesting
      events. There are currently four numbered sunspot regions visible.
      Two of them, regions 775 and 776, have been growing both in size and
      in magnetic complexity. Both have the potential to produce an M-class
      flare, and both are in an Earth-pointing position. Stay tuned to see
      if either of these two sunspot regions does anything noteworthy.

      The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 99
      SFI : 116
      A index : 3
      K index : 1

      Solar wind speed : 354.7 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 1.2 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 0.2 nPa

      IMF : 3.2 nT
      IMF Orientation : 2.4 nT North

      GOES-12 Background X-ray Flux Level : B2

      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 a activity is expected to be at low levels. Regions 775 and 776
      may both be capable of producing an isolated low level M-class flare.

      Geomagmetic activity forecast :
      The geomagnetic field is expected to be at predominantly quiet to
      unsettled levels. Beginning late on 11 June, active conditions may
      occur due to the arrival of the faint partial halo CME that was
      observed yesterday.

      Recent significant solar flare activity :
      None
