Due to generally cloudy sky condition at the proposed time of observation, no solar images were taken.

The Sun has remained spotless and inactive over the past 24 hours. No active sunspot regions currently exist on the Sun’s visible disk.The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 5.  Some huge non-Earth directed eruptive prominences were still the main features of the Sun despite the current absence of sunspots.

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.
