SUNSPOT MONITORING – JANUARY 28, 2018

968 1024 alsadeemadmin

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, January 28, 2018.

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

The Sun remains spotless and inactive over the past 24 hours. No active sunspot regions currently exist on the Sun’s visible disk. No solar flare activity was recorded over the past 24 hours. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0.  Only some non-Earth directed eruptive prominences at the limbs are the Sun’s current features as 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.
