On average, the sun has been active this week, producing 3 M-class flares and 57 C-class flares. The most active region earlier in the week was NOAA 11861. Then, after a few days of low solar activity, NOAA 11875 has become active producing 2 M-class flares. This active region is currently located near disk-center and we can expect more activity here. STEREO B shows that there may be one AR rotating onto disk in about a week.
How many GOES flares occurred?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 3 57 3 0
And how many of these are listed in the RHESSI flare list?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 2 40 2 0
And how many had EXCELLENT coverage?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 1 19 1 0
There were RHESSI flares/GOES flares 440 / 63 over the time range 15-Oct-13 22-Oct-13
Due to increased solar activity, the SSR did not fully empty at the end of pass sets. The maximum of this week was 33% and it is currently at ~9%.
The decimation was changed to normal_vigorous at 2013/294 (October 21) 17:53 UTC. This is when the solar active was low.
For a better memory management, the group decided to turn off event data for fronts during spacecraft night (except +/- 4 min).
The cold plate 2 temperature decreased from 116.8K to 116.0K, as expected due to the growing length of eclipse The other systems are also nominal.
There was one data gap probably due to a processing error.

RHESSI was spun up between 2013-294-17:51 and 294-19:25 UT, from 14.50 to 14.95 RPM.
