The South African National Space Agency (SANSA) was established in 2010. Following a period of rapid growth and transition the agency has made significant advancements towards addressing its mandate of deriving greater value from space science and technology for the benefit of South African society.

CURRENT SPACE WEATHER CONDITIONS: Solar activity is very low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. The solar wind speed is at background levels with speeds between 320 km/s - 350 km/s. Geomagnetic conditions are at quiet levels. Local HF working frequencies are slightly elevated compared to the monthly average predicted values.

OUTLOOK: Solar activity is expected to be very low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. There is no active region visible on the solar disk and no flaring activity is expected. The solar wind speed is expected to be at background levels throughout the day. Geomagnetic conditions are expected to remain at quiet levels. High speed steam from coronal hole 94 (CH94) is expected to elevate the solar wind speed above background levels. Geomagnetic conditions are then expected to be unsettled with a chance of active storm levels.
