Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, May 27, 2017.

The sky was clear; seeing and transparency was good at the time these images were taken.

A slight decrease in solar activity was observed. AR2659 remains distinctly present on the Sun’s photosphere while the other active regions have been gradually decaying over the past 24 hours with AR2658 leaving some traces on the false color H-alpha image.

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 plages can be seen on the limbs, especially the one that has recently appeared from the northeastern limb (left portion of the white light image). A close-up shot of AR2659 is also posted as additional feature.

Overall, solar activity was found to be low at this moment. We’ll keep monitoring for any significant development.
