30th November


Solar activity was very low. Region 1909 (S18W26, Dkc/beta-gamma)
remained the largest, most complex region on the visible disk, yet
exhibited very little flare activity. The remainder of the spotted
regions were relatively stable or in slight decay. New Region 1911
(S12E23, Csi/beta) was numbered over night. A large filament was
observed lifting off near the southwest limb from approximately 29/1614
UTC to 29/2129 UTC. The subsequent coronal mass ejection (CME) observed
in Lasco C2 imagery at approximately 29/2236 UTC indicated the majority
of the ejecta had a southward trajectory and should have little impact
at Earth. No Earth-directed CMEs were observed during the period.
