There were RHESSI flares/GOES flares          33 /           36
over the time range 30-Nov-10 07-Dec-10

Today, two ~10-hr long GOES flux increase (from ~B1 baseline to ~B2). CMEs??

Memory Management

Because we are loosing 1-2 BGS passes a day to THEMIS/ARTEMIS operations, we are using 2 Waldheim passes/day. This should last until ~Sunday. There is a little bit of concern we might have some troubles when the Sun becomes more active (we are getting more data than before the last anneal), but we should be able to handle it.

Data Gaps

No data gaps of importance were reported.

Spacecraft Status

No commanding changes this week, except for a spin up last Wednesday. We remain in normal/vigorous decimation mode, with 4 minutes of data taken on each side of the eclipse.
