COMMENT: Solar activity was low during the last 24 hours. Two 
low level C-class flares were observed during this period. Solar 
wind speed mostly stayed between 260 and 340 km/s during the 
last 24 hours. IMF Bz mostly stayed between +/- 4nT during this 
period. Low levels of solar activity may be expected for the 
next three days with some possibility of isolated M-class event.

Observed Regional daily pc3 Indices 28 Nov : 
      Darwin               2   (Quiet)
      Townsville           0   (Quiet)

      Gingin               0   (Quiet)
      Canberra             0   (Quiet)

Pc3 pulsations are high frequency (10-45 second period) variations 
of the Earths magnetic field. Daily pc3-indices are the daily sum 
of 20 minute pc3-indices for that station and have been shown to be
well correlated with rejection of high resolution aeromagnetic
survey flight-line data. 

NOTE: Indices may have been generated from data obtained in 
cooperation with the following organisations: Geoscience Australia, 
University of Newcastle Space Physics Group, Australian Government 
Antarctic Division and International Center for Space Weather 
Science and Education, Japan.
