Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, June 7, 2017.

The sky was mostly clear and slightly breezy, making the seeing and transparency fair at the time these images were taken.

Active Region (AR) 2661 mellowed down its activity even further, as it looked like a gradual decomposition over the past 24 hours. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 13.

With this observation, there could be less or milder flaring activity associated with this AR in the next few days, as per Spaceweather and SIDC reports, though it is still being closely monitored for any significant development.

Some plages, and minor flare outbursts were captured, as shown in the false-color H-alpha image.

Overall, solar activity was considered low at this moment.
