Solar activity has been at moderate levels for the past 24 hours. Region 1476 (N11E35) is the most complex region on the visible disk, has grown to become a Fkc/beta-gamma-delta configuration, and has an area of approximately 940 Millionths.

It also produced the largest flare, a M1/1f on Tuesday, May 08, 2012 at 13:08 UTC, as well as several C-class flares. COR2 imagery from the STEREO-A spacecraft indicated two weak Earth-directed CMEs that are not expected to have significant impacts upon arrival.

Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be at low to moderate levels for the next three days (09 – 11 May).

Geophysical Activity Summary 07/21:00 UTC to 08/21:00 UTC: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours.

Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled on day one (09 May). Day two (10 May) is expected to be at quiet to active levels with a chance for minor storm periods due to the effects of the Coronal Hole High Speed Stream (CH HSS) and the anticipated arrival of the CME that departed the solar disk on 07 May. Day three (11 May) is expected to return to quiet to unsettled levels as the effects of the CH HSS begin to wane.
