SUNSPOT MONITORING – NOVEMBER 24, 2017

1024 734 alsadeemadmin

Here are yesterday’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, November 24, 2017.

The sky was mostly clear with slight air turbulence making the seeing and transparency average to good at the time these images were taken.

Solar activity remains at very low levels over the past 24 hours. 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. As it approaches the western limb, the relatively quiet plage (formerly AR2687) became more defined in visible imagery. Some impressive prominences and the huge dark filament were also seen on the Sun’s visible 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.
