SUNSPOT MONITORING – MAy 28, 2017

Here are yesterday’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, May 28, 2017.

The sky was mostly clear and transparency was fair, but seeing was terrible at the time these images were taken, due to moderate to strong northerly breeze.

A slight decrease in solar activity was observed. AR2659 remains distinctly present on the Sun’s photosphere as it moves towards to the Sun’s western limb. The other active regions (ARs) were either decayed or has completely traversed the Sun’s western limb, away from our sight.

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 15. Some plages, minor prominences, and filaments can be seen on the false color H-alpha 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.
