12th November

Solar wind parameters, measured at the ACE spacecraft, were consistent
with diminishing CH HSS influence. Solar wind speeds began the period
near 550 km/s, but steadily decreased by the end of the period to
approximately 410 km/s. The total field strength ranged from 2 nT to 8
nT for most of the period and settled in at approximately 5 nT by the
end of the period. The Bz component fluctuated between -5 nT to +5 nT,
ending the period at +3 nT. Following the transition from negative
(toward) to positive (away) orientation around 11/1743 UTC, the phi
angle of the solar wind remained in a mostly positive (away) orientation
to finish the period.
