Solar activity was at moderate (R1 – moderate) levels due to a long
duration M1 X-ray flare from old Region 1893 (S13, L=100). This region
continues to produce C and M class flares, but is well beyond the
western limb and any subsequent coronal mass ejections (CMEs) would be
too far west to impact Earth. Region 1897 (S18W58, Dso/beta-gamma)
produced a C6 flare at approximately 20/1722 UTC. The other spot groups
were unremarkable. No Earth-directed CMEs were observed.
