Solar Activity

This week's solar activity was made up of fewer large flares but a large number of small, B-class flares. Five active regions remain on the Sun although most of them will rotate off the disk in the next day. STEREO B shows little activity, so the Sun is expected to stay quiet for the next several days. However, the tohban did have a dream that there was an X-class flare, so maybe this was a premonition.  :)

Memory Management

The SSR is reaching 5% at the end of each pass, with a maximum of 40%.

Data Gaps

We are experiencing trouble with the PDP at the Berkeley ground station. Ops is working on a replacement. As a result, a backup PDP is being used. This resulted in several large data gaps which will need to be reprocessed. This data is not lost, but has not yet been processed.

Spacecraft Status

A spin up was performed on Monday to a nominal 15 rpm. There were no HV changes. Cold plate 2 is at 98.5 K.
