SUNSPOT MONITORING – JANUARY 25, 2018

857 874 alsadeemadmin

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, January 25, 2018.

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

The Sun has remained relatively quiet in activity over the past 24 hours. No active sunspot regions currently exist on the Sun’s visible disk. No solar flare activity was recorded throughout the monitoring period. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0.  A huge eruptive hedgerow prominence at the northwestern limb was 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.
