Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, May 21, 2017.

The sky was clear and seeing was fair, due to light to moderate northwesterly breeze, at the time these images were taken.

Two solar groups remain present over the Sun’s photosphere, AR2656 and AR2658. According to the recent SOHO, SIDC, and Spaceweather reports, no significant threat for any Earth-directed solar flare or coronal mass ejection (CME) activity. Meanwhile, a new developing AR somewhat west of AR2656 was spotted. The latest sunspot number (as per our visual count) is 36. Numerous filaments and plages can be seen in the false-color H-alpha image.

We’ll keep monitoring for any significant development.
