In addition to the Energetic Ion Enhancement Event of 0640 UTC 17-I-2005  
(see my last update), a moderate shock has been detected in the solar wind  
speed at 0716 UTC, 17-I-2005.  The plasma density change was 3.4 part/cc,  
with an increase in speed of 78 km/s, and a temperature increase of  
171,851.9 degrees K.  The Bz went from -0.3 to -1.2 at the same moment.   
This is a precursor to the beginning of geomagnetic storminess within 12
