# SIDC Weekly bulletin on Solar and Geomagnetic activity             #
#--------------------------------------------------------------------#
WEEK 1029 from 2020 Sep 14
SOLAR ACTIVITY
---------------
The Sun was spotless throughout the week and there were no flares. The GOES
X-ray flux background was around A0.5-A1 level. There were no
Earth-directed CMEs and the greater than 10 MeV proton flux and the greater
than 2 MeV electron flux were at nominal levels throughout the week.
GEOMAGNETIC ACTIVITY
---------------------
TThe solar wind as registered by DSCOVR was at nominal levels throughout
the week. Solar wind speeds varied between about 270 and 435 km/s. The
Interplanetary Magnetic Field had alternating orientation between away from
the Sun and towards the Sun and magnitude between about 0 and 10 nT. Bz was
below -5 nT for several intervals on September 14, with a lowest value
slightly below -8 nT, but both K Dourbes and NOAA Kp levels did not exceed
3.
