The Sun has been quiet active this week. A big active region appear on the solar disk last friday October 17. This active region hosted two X-class flares this week and a handful of M and C class flares. Currently there are five active regions on the disk. Today we have a 20% of probability to have an X-class flare and a 65% of probability for an M-class flare.
How many GOES flares occurred?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 0 36 9 1
And how many of these are listed in the RHESSI flare list?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 0 26 7 1
And how many had EXCELLENT coverage?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 0 0 0 0
There were RHESSI flares/GOES flares 410 / 46 over the time range 14-Oct-14 21-Oct-14
SSR was a little high this week mostly because the intensive activity of the sun and because we kept the night time taking data. We got the highest value on the SSR on 2014-10-21 around 15:00 UT, it was ~50%. Based on that we decided stopping the night time taking data today. Also, the decimation was changed to "Active/Vigorous" at 292-18:18:16 UTC.
Two warnings remained almost constantly all week regarding the Cold plate 1 [126.063 degrees (K)] and the Solar Array Temperature 1 [96.586 degrees (C)]. Some times temperature on the Cold plate 2 also appeared with a warning.
It looked nominal as far as a tohban can say. RHESSI decimation was changed form Normal/Vigorous to Active/Vigorous on October 19 at 18:18:16 UTC. Attenuator motion was nominal. We stopped taking the whole night time data today (October 22) at 17:40 UT. RHESSI is taking only 4 minutes on either side of the eclipse for background analysis purposes.
No data gaps this week.
Detector 2: It still presents the light leak issue with a not significant change from last week.
There were no threshold changes this week.
|HLAT Decimation||Rear decimation weight 6, no front decimation|
|Night time data (fronts)||Full nighttime events stopped|
|Night time data (rears)||Full nighttime events stopped|
|Require extra passes?||We are going to ask for extra passes this week because the big active region|
|Requirement for moving pointer?||No|
|Attenuator operation||Nominal with a lot of motions because the high solar activity|
|Detector problems?||Detector 2 light leak|
