Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, June 15, 2017
.
The sky was partly covered with haze, and experienced intermittent light to moderate breeze, making the seeing and transparency fair to poor at the time these images were taken.

A newly-formed sunspot group (to be designated AR2663) was spotted in the Sun’s middle portion, while AR2662 remains clearly defined. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 31.

There were reports of minor CMEs and B-class flare outbursts which caused no significant geomagnetic effect over the past 24 hours. SIDC and NOAA-SWPC forecast a relatively calm Sun with minimal chance of any serious solar flare or CME activity in the next few days but close monitoring is being conducted for any major development.
