Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, January 13, 2018.

The sky was clear with light air turbulence making the seeing and transparency good at the time these images were taken.

Solar activity remains at very low levels over the past 24 hours. AR2695 has totally decayed into a plage, leaving the Sun’s visible disk spotless at this moment. No solar flare activity was recorded over the mentioned monitoring period. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Some filaments and eruptive prominences at the limbs were distinctively captured 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.
