Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, May 29, 2017.

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

A further decrease in solar activity was observed. AR2659 is approaching the Sun’s western limb towards the far side, moving away from our sight.

No serious threat for any strong solar flare or coronal mass ejection (CME) activity associated with this AR, based on the latest SOHO, SpaceWeather, SIDC, and Solar Monitor reports. The latest sunspot number (as per our visual count) is 13. Some plages, minor prominences, and a large filament can be seen in the false color H-alpha image.

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