SUNSPOT MONITORING – MARCH 7, 2018

781 802 alsadeemadmin

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, March 7, 2018.

The sky was clear but experienced light to moderate breeze making the seeing and transparency average at the time these images were taken.

Solar activity remains at very low levels over the past 24 hours. No active sunspot regions currently exist on the Sun’s visible disk. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Few tiny filaments and huge plage region across the disk, as well as a large eruptive prominence at the northeastern limb, were 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.
