29th October


Solar activity has been at moderate levels for the past 24 hours.
Regions 1875 (N06W82, Ekc/beta-gamma-delta) and 1882 (S09W01,
Dkc/beta-gamma-delta) were the most active regions on the solar disk.
Region 1882 produced the largest flare of the period, an M4/1n, at
28/1515 UTC with an associated Type II radio sweep (estimated velocity
1855 km/s). A coronal mass ejection (CME) from this event appeared in
LASCO/C2 at 28/1536 UTC and appears to have an Earth-directed component.
Region 1875 reached the western limb and will be rotating off the
visible disk today. Although it is now on the limb, analysis shows it
likely still has its beta-gamma-delta magnetic configuration and is
still capable of producing large flares as it rotates behind the limb.
