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 low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. The solar wind speed is slightly elevated with speeds between 400 km/s - 420 km/s due to a high speed stream from coronal hole 14 (CH14). Geomagnetic conditions are at quiet levels. Local HF working frequencies are elevated compared to the monthly average predicted values.

OUTLOOK: Solar activity is expected to remain low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. There is no visible sunspot region on the Sun and no flaring activity is expected. The high speed stream from coronal hole 14 (CH14) is expected to remain elevated for the next couple of days. Geomagnetic conditions are then expected to be unsettled with active geomagnetic storm activity.
