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 300 - 350 km/s. Local 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 be low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. There are no sunspot regions visible on the solar disk and no flaring activity is expected. The solar wind speed is expected to increase later today. A High solar wind speed stream from coronal hole 79 is likely to impact Earth later during the day and on the 15th of March. Geomagnetic conditions are then expected to be active with a chance of minor geomagnetic storm.
