SUNSPOT MONITORING – SEPTEMBER 7, 2018

731 1024 alsadeemadmin

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, September 7, 2018.

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

The Sun still exhibits no visible sunspot groups as solar activity remains at its inactive state with no significant flaring activity recorded. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0.  Some huge eruptive prominences at the southwestern limb and a scattered plage region with a tiny filament at the near central portion of the Sun’s disk were distinctively captured 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.
