SUNSPOT MONITORING – NOVEMBER 23, 2017

1024 756 alsadeemadmin

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, November 23, 2017.

The sky was clear but experienced some moderate winds making the seeing and transparency average to poor at the time these images were taken.

Solar activity remains at very low levels over the past 24 hours as expected. No sunspot groups were visible at the Sun indicating its relatively quiet state without any solar flaring recorded at this moment. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Nothing significant is currently going on in the Sun except for several tiny prominences on the limbs and the large dark filament at the central portion clearly seen on the Sun’s disk in H-alpha imagery.

Space weather agencies* forecast solar activity to remain at very low levels with chances of weak X-ray fluxes or flares ranging up to B-class intensity. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.
