Solar activity reached moderate levels. Region 2155 (S20E65, Hax/alpha)
produced an M2/Sf flare at 03/1354 UTC. Analysis indicated the

active as it continues to transit behind the west limb. This region was
responsible for a C5 flare at 03/2124 UTC, as well as a C2 flare at
04/0228 UTC. Initial indications suggest the bulk of the CME is directed

Region 2152 (S16W31, Eki/beta-gamma) exhibited some consolidation in its

and was predominantly inactive through out the period. Regions 2156
(N15E63, Bxo/beta) and 2157 (S13E75, Hax/alpha) were numbered during the
