# SIDC Weekly bulletin on Solar and Geomagnetic activity             #
#--------------------------------------------------------------------#
WEEK 915 from 2018 Jul 09
SOLAR ACTIVITY
---------------
Over the past week solar activity was low. No significant flares have been
recorded. Catania group 89 was the only sunspot region on the visible side
of the Sun that produced B1.5 and B1.3 flare on 10-Jul-2018. The greater
than 10 MeV proton flux
remained at background levels throughout the week. No Earth directed CMEs
were detected. There were no significant coronal holes on the solar disk,
except one small region of negative polarity coronal hole which crossed
central meridian on 13-July-2018.
GEOMAGNETIC ACTIVITY
---------------------
The solar wind speed has fluctuated between 500 and 310 km/s over the past
week. At the start of the week the total magnetic field strength fluctuated
between 2 and 5 nT, but jumped to around 13 nT on 13-Jul-2018.
Simultaneously Bz component jumped to around +7 nT. The jump is attributed
to the predicted CME arrival departed from the East solar limb on
05-Jul-2018. Geomagnetic conditions ranged between Kp index 0-3 (NOAA) and
local K index 0-3 (Dourbes).
