Solar wind parameters were indicative of a nominal solar wind
environment. Solar wind speeds were steady in the 350-450 km/s range
with only short periods of speeds reaching close to 500 km/s. Total
field strength values ranged from 1 – 8 nT while the Bz component
ranged from +8 nT to -5 nT. The phi angle transitioned from a negative
(toward) sector to a positive (away) sector at around 27/1800 UTC but
became variable after about 28/0100 UTC.
