8th October

Solar activity was low. Activity consisted of a few lower level C-class
flares which originated from a spotless plage region near N15E40. All of
the spotted regions on the disk were quiet and stable. A coronal mass
ejection was observed in SOHO/LASCO C2 imagery emerging from the
southern hemisphere at 07/1829 UTC. This eruption may have been
associated with filament activity between 07/1515 and 07/1627 observed
in GONG H-alpha imagery as well as SDO/AIA 193 imagery. The event
appears narrow and directed well south and no Earth directed component
is expected.

Solar activity is likely to be low (Below R1-Minor)for the next three
days (08-10 Oct).
