Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, May 22, 2017.
The sky was hazy and seeing was poor, due moderate to strong northerly breeze, at the time these images were taken.
More active regions (ARs) were spotted in the Sun, indicating that it is becoming more active. Two active regions recently popped out, AR2659 and an undesignated one, while AR2656 and AR2658 remain present in the Sun’s photosphere. No serious threat for any strong solar flare or coronal mass ejection (CME) activity associated with these ARs is expected, based on the latest SOHO, SpaceWeather, SIDC, and Solar Monitor reports. The latest sunspot number (as per our visual count) is 51. Numerous filaments, plages, and some minor flares can be seen in the false H-alpha full disk image.
We’ll keep monitoring for any significant development.
