Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, July 22, 2017.

The sky was partly hazy but experienced intermittent moderate to strong winds, making the seeing and transparency fair to poor at the time these images were taken.

With a current stretch of 4 days, a spotless Sun was observed with no visible active regions over the past 24 hours. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Some small filaments and prominences were captured on its occurrence at the false color H-alpha image.

With this stance, a persistent calm Sun with minimal chance of any serious solar activity is predicted. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.
