SUNSPOT MONITORING – AUGUST 7, 2018

1024 944 alsadeemadmin

Here is the visible image of the Sun taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, August 7, 2018. No other solar images were taken due to the presence of scattered clouds at the western horizon at the time of observation.

No visible sunspots regions were observed as relatively very low solar activity persists over the past 24 hours. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0.

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.
