Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, July 27, 2017.

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

The tiny spots associated with AR2668 have decayed rapidly over the past 24 hours, leaving its traces as plages which are barely seen. Generally speaking, solar activity has been very low with not much activity going on. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 10.

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.
