Solar activity was low. Region 1890 (S11W10, Ekc/beta-gamma-delta)
continued to be the largest, most complex spot group on the visible
disk. However, activity has greatly decreased from this region, despite
maintaining its beta-gamma-delta magnetic configuration, producing just
a single C2/1f flare over the past 24 hours. Region 1891 (S18W44,
Dao/beta) showed signs of decay and produced little to no x-ray flare
activity during the period. The remaining four numbered spot regions
were either stable or decaying and were unremarkable. Further analysis
of the coronal mass ejection (CME) associated with the M2 flare
determined this CME was not likely to have an Earth-directed component.
No Earth-directed CMEs were observed during the period.
