SUNSPOT MONITORING – MAY 25, 2017

Here’s today’s solar image taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, May 25, 2017.

The sky was mostly clear but seeing was poor due to moderate to strong northwesterly windflow, at the time this image was taken. Unfortunately, no H-alpha image was captured due to an avoidable reason.

A significant decrease in solar activity was observed. Only the sunspots associated with AR2659 is visible in the white light image which seemed to have more defined spots than yesterday, while the rest vanished.

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 19. Some plage traces can be seen on the limbs.

We’ll keep monitoring for any significant development.
