Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
08 - 14 October 2018

Solar activity was very low this period. Regions 2724 (S08, L=126,
class/area, Hrx/20 on 12 Oct) and 2725 (S11, L=113, class/area,
Axx/10 on 14 Oct) were the only numbered sunspots on the visible
disk but were quiet and stable throughout the period. No
Earth-directed CMEs were observed during the summary period.

No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached
high levels on 08-13 Oct then decreased to moderate levels on 14
Oct.

Geomagnetic field activity reached G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm
levels on 10 and 13 Oct, active conditions on 08-09 Oct, unsettled
levels on 11 Oct, and quiet conditions on 12 and 14 Oct due to CH
HSS influence.

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
15 October - 10 November 2018

Solar activity is expected to be very low throughout the outlook
period.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to reach high levels on 15-25 Oct and 04-09 Nov with
moderate flux levels expected thoughout the remainder of the period.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to reach G1 (Minor)
geomagnetic storm levels on 19 Oct and 03-04 Nov with active levels
expected on 18 Oct and 05-06 Nov due to the influence of multiple,
recurrent CH HSSs.
