Solar activity was high. Region 1884 (S13W01, Eki/beta-gamma)
produced an M6/1b flare at 01/1953 UTC, which was the largest event of
the period. Region 1885 (S19W02, Cso/beta) also produced a C8/Sf flare
at 02/0446 UTC. A full halo CME became visible in SOHO C2 images at
about 02/0448 UTC. Preliminary data from other instruments suggest that
this event was back-sided and is not Earth directed.
