SUNSPOT MONITORING – MARCH 11, 2018

1024 944 alsadeemadmin

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, March 11, 2018.

The sky was clear but experienced moderate and strong air turbulence making the seeing and transparency average to poor at the time these images were taken.

Solar activity remains at very low levels over the past 24 hours. The Sun remains spotless and relatively inactive with no significant flare activity recorded. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Not much solar features were observed except for few tiny prominences and a plage at the near-central portion of the Sun’s disk as distinctively captured in H-alpha imagery.

Space weather agencies* forecast solar activity to remain at very low levels with chances of weak X-ray fluxes or flares ranging up to B-class intensity. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.
