# SIDC Weekly bulletin on Solar and Geomagnetic activity             #
#--------------------------------------------------------------------#
WEEK 980 from 2019 Oct 07
SOLAR ACTIVITY
---------------
Solar activity was very low throughout the period. No earth-directed
coronal mass ejections (CMEs) have been observed in available coronagraphic
imagery. The greater than 10 MeV proton flux was at nominal values. A
patchy negative polarity coronal hole in the southern solar hemisphere
transited the central meridian on 10 October.
GEOMAGNETIC ACTIVITY
---------------------
The solar wind speed ranged between 320 and 520 km/s (ACE), with the
slightly elevated levels occurring on October 10-11. The interplanetary
magnetic field (phi angle) was directed mostly away from the Sun (positive
sector), except on October 9, when it switched to the negative sector for
approximately one day. Bz varied between -9 and +9 nT, with two periods of
strong negative Bz on October 9 and 10.

Geomagnetic activity ranged from quiet to active conditions, with the
active episodes occurring during the enhanced solar wind conditions on
October 9 and 10.
