Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, April 4, 2018.

The sky was clear with intermittent light to moderate breeze making the seeing and transparency average at the time these images were taken.

The Sun remains spotless and relatively inactive with no significant flaring activity recorded over the past 24 hours. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0.  Few eruptive prominences at the limbs and the plage (former AR2703) 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.
