Sunspots crossed the disk, but were not very active. The star event was SOL2010-12-06T06:39 (C5.3), well observed by RHESSI and also Fermi - see this Browser link. There is an interesting glitch here - it looks like neither a flare nor a GRB really. Also there is a series of soft X-ray pulses, likely not solar, on several orbits starting with this one; they are suspiciously near RHESSI crossings of the terrestrial equator.

The tohban this week forgot all about the operations meeting, even though he had been keeping an eye on things. We hope that this unprecedented memory failure was a common single-event upset and apologize to all.
No data gaps of importance were found.
Is G5 acting up? See this example.
