# SIDC Weekly bulletin on Solar and Geomagnetic activity             #
#--------------------------------------------------------------------#
WEEK 998 from 2020 Feb 10
SOLAR ACTIVITY
---------------
The solar activity was very quiet over the past week. The visible solar
disc was spotless and the X-ray flux remained below B-level. 

No earth-directed coronal mass ejections (CMEs) have been observed in the
available coronagraphic imagery. The greater than 10 MeV proton flux was at
nominal values.
GEOMAGNETIC ACTIVITY
---------------------
The Earth was under the slow solar wind regime with the wind speed ranging
between 300 km/s and 450 km/s. The solar wind parameters were slightly
enhanced due to speed streams from several small coronal holes (with
negative and positive polarity). The total interplanetary magnetic field
remained below 6.5 nT, and the southward magnetic component fluctuated
between -6 nT and 5 nT.

The geomagnetic conditions were mostly quiet, with few isolated periods of
unsettled conditions.
