SUNSPOT MONITORING – JUNE 13, 2017

960 885 alsadeemadmin

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, June 13, 2017.

The sky was clear, but experienced some moderate breeze, making the seeing poor and fair transparency at the time these images were taken.

An undesignated potential active region (AR) was spotted at the Sun’s eastern limb which is about to rotate towards our view. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 1. SIDC and NOAA forecast a persisting relatively calm Sun with minimal chance of any major solar flare or CME activity.

Some filaments, plages, and flares along the eastern limb were captured in the false-color H-alpha image.

We’ll keep monitoring for any significant development.
