SUNSPOT MONITORING – MARCH 9, 2018

968 1024 alsadeemadmin

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, March 9, 2018.

The sky was clear with light air turbulence making the seeing and transparency good at the time these images were taken.

The Sun remains spotless and relatively inactive without any solar flare activity recorded 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.  Nothing much happening the Sun lately except for several tiny filaments at the limbs, and the huge plage region with a filament at the central portion of the Sun’s visible 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.
