2 April


Solar activity was low. Frequent low-level C-class flares occurred, most
of which were from Region 2026 (S11E44, Dai/beta-gamma). Minor spot and
penumbra development was noted in Region 2026 along with a mix of
polarities in the leading half of the region. A filament, centered near
N02E20, erupted from the northeast quadrant at around 01/1439 UTC and
was associated with an Earth-directed, asymmetric full-halo coronal mass
ejection (CME). The CME was first visible in LASCO images at around
01/1648 UTC and had a speed of around 858 km/s.
