5th November


Solar activity was moderate for the past 24 hours. Region 1890 (S09E42,
Ehc/beta-gamma-delta) produced the largest event of the period, an
impulsive M2/1f flare at 05/0818 UTC. An associated coronal mass
ejection (CME) was first observed in LASCO/C2 imagery at 05/0824 UTC but
the ejecta appeared to be heading south and is not anticipated to be
Earth-directed. Region 1890 continued to be the largest and most
magnetically complex region on the disk. Region 1884 (S12W46,
Dso/beta-gamma) showed signs of decay but was not a significant flare
contributor. Region 1889 (S18W12, Dao/beta) showed growth and
consolidation in its follower spot group. There were no Earth-directed
CMEs observed in satellite imagery during the period.
