No solar images were taken today, August 10, 2018, due to unfavorable weather condition (mostly cloudy skies) at the proposed time of observation.

The Sun remains spotless with no significant flaring activity recorded by space weather agencies over the past 24 hours as solar minimum continues. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0.  Recent solar features include the departing plage (former AR2717) towards the western limb seen in visible imagery, few filaments and another well-distinct plage at the central disk in H-alpha imagery

Space weather agencies* forecast solar activity to remain at very low levels with chances of weak X-ray fluxes or flares ranging up to B-class intensity. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.
