3 January

Solar activity was at moderate levels. Region 1944 (S10E58,
Fkc/beta-gamma) produced an M1/1n at 02/2218 UTC, the largest flare of
the period. A significant increase in area and spot count was observed
as this large region continues to rotate onto the disk. Region 1936s
(S16W68, Dai/beta-gamma) intermediate and trailer spots decayed and the
overall area decreased. Region 1940 (S12W80, Dko/beta) grew and
developed more spots. New Region 1945 (N10E11, Bxo/beta) developed on
the disk as a simple bi-polar group and grew. The remaining regions were
unchanged. No Earth-directed CMEs were detected.
