From Belgium's Royal Observatory: New Beta AR2722 near the southern equatorial region of the sun.
AR2722 already appears to be decaying, but that is par for the course during a solar minimum
as Active Regions can quickly develop only to decay rapidly a day later.
COMMENT: Solar activity was very low. A new emerging active region NOAA AR
2722 (Bxo, Beta) has some potential to produce C-class flares. No earth-
directed coronal mass ejections (CMEs) were observed. The greater than
10MeV proton flux remained at background levels over the past 24 hours.
Solar activity is expected to remain low.
Solar wind parameters variations decreased after the passage of the co-
rotating intercation region. Solar wind speed decreased from about 590 to
530 km/s. The total interplanetary magnetic field is below 6 nT. Bz varied
between -3 and +5 nT. Geomagnetic conditions gradually decreased from the
moderate storm level yesterday till quiet conditons observed now.
Geomagnetic conditions are expected to be mostly quiet from now.
