6 Solar flares on the 2nd, two of which were M-class (update ~ total of 11 for the whole day, 4 M-class). Three flares on the 1st, including one M-class. You can view more details at the Tesis webiste.
Suspicious 0bservers declared in his latest update that "....the Sun is awake" ~ two radio blackouts resulted (that could explain my non-functioning GPS).
