Solar activity is low as far as the emergence of the number of new sunspot 
groups. Currently there are 5 numbered and 1 new un-numbered sunspot group.

Solar activity is very low (0 solar flares) as far as the number of new 
solar flares and their magnitude. The largest solar flare in the past 24 
hour period was a small C1.1.

The daily solar flux index (SFI) has languished below 100 for 5 consecutive 
days, currently at 96.8. I have begun to list the daily 2800 khz SFI due to 
requests but it does not tell one about the current state of ionization of 
the F1/F2 layers.

The daily sunspot number (SSN) has languished below 100 for 14 consecutive 
days, currently at 56.

The geomagnetic field had been quiet for 3 consecutive days with the Kp 
(planetary) index in the 0-2 range. The following are the 24 hour 3 hour Kp 
(planetary) intervals 00100000. That's almost as quite as the geomagnetic 
field can be.

The Dst ranged between -15 and 0.
