Solar activity reached high levels. Region 2192 (S12W52,
Fkc/beta-gamma-delta) produced a pair of R2 (Moderate) flares (M7 at
27/0034 UTC and M6 at 27/1009 UTC) as well as six R1 (Minor) flares this
period. Region 2192 began to show signs of minor penumbral decay and
umbral consolidation but persists as the most productive and threatening
region on the solar disk. The other regions on the visible disk were
either stable or in decay. No Earth-directed coronal mass ejections
(CMEs) were observed this period.
Continued M-class (R1-R2 (Minor-Moderate)) flare activity is expected
and X-class (R3 or greater) flare activity is likely over the next three
days (27-29 Oct) due to Region 2192′s persistent activity.
