SUNSPOT MONITORING – OCTOBER 4, 2017

FOREWORD: No sunspot monitoring information was issued yesterday, October 3, 2017 due to important institution-related errands, as well as the foggy condition at the proposed time of observation.

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, October 4, 2017.

The sky was mostly clear but experienced some intermittent light breeze making the seeing and transparency average at the time these images were taken.

The Sun has been quiet in activity over the past 24 hours. No significant solar activity was recorded except for 3 weak B-class solar flares from AR2683; developed few opposite-polarity sunspots compared to the previous. The large filament near AR2682 remains distinct. All ARs exhibit relatively stable magnetic configuration which signifies little to no threat of any major flaring activity.

The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 28.

Space weather agencies* forecast low to very low solar activity to continue with minimum solar flare activity, ranging up to C-class intensity. The extent of the frequency and intensity of the Sun’s activity will highly depend on the magnetic flux fluctuations happening in the visible ARs in the coming days. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.
