SUNSPOT MONITORING – NOVEMBER 25, 2017

Here are yesterday’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, November 25, 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.

A new sunspot group (not yet designated at the time of capture) was found developing at the central portion of the Sun’s disk. In spite of that, the Sun remains in its relatively quiet state with no significant flaring activity recorded over the past 24 hours. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 2. Numerous prominences on the limbs and filaments of different sizes were 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.
