Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, August 13, 2017.

The sky was clear but experienced intermittent light to moderate winds, making the seeing and transparency average at the time these images were taken.

Very low solar activity was observed over the past 24 hours. The lone sunspot group AR2670 is nearing the Sun’s western limb as it remained quiet in activity and magnetically stable. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 11.

Space weather agencies predicted a persisting relatively calm Sun with slim chance of any serious solar flare or CME activity in the next 24 hours. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.
