COMMENT: Solar activity was High over the last 24 hours with 
significant flare activity from region 1890 (S11E40). Region 
1890 was the source of an M2.5 xray flare at 0818UT and a X3.3 
xray flare at 2212UT along with numerous C-class events. Preliminary 
data suggest that there was no associated CME with the X-class 
event, but will be re-assessed once LASCO imagery becomes available. 
A CME from the M2.5 flare was observed but it was not earth directed 
as LASCO C2 imagery from 0824UT onwards shows it moving south 
of the ecliptic plane. Region 1890 remained relatively stable 
in terms of growth over the last 24 hours but due to its large 
overall size, high spot number and magnetic complexity, has the 
potential for further M-class and X-class flares. Solar wind 
decreased from 400km/s at 00UT to be 350km/s at the time of this 
report. Bz fluctuated between +/-5nT over the UT day. Solar activity 
is expected to range from Low to Moderate for the next 3 days 
with the chance of further X-class flares.

Observed Regional daily pc3 Indices 05 Nov : 
      Darwin               0   (Quiet)
      Townsville           0   (Quiet)

      Gingin               0   (Quiet)
      Canberra             0   (Quiet)

Pc3 pulsations are high frequency (10-45 second period) variations 
of the Earths magnetic field. Daily pc3-indices are the daily sum 
of 20 minute pc3-indices for that station and have been shown to be
well correlated with rejection of high resolution aeromagnetic
survey flight-line data. 

NOTE: Indices may have been generated from data obtained in 
cooperation with the following organisations: Geoscience Australia, 
University of Newcastle Space Physics Group, Australian Government 
Antarctic Division and International Center for Space Weather 
Science and Education, Japan.
