SUNSPOT MONITORING – AUGUST 10, 2017

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, August 10, 2017.

The sky was mostly sunny but experienced intermittent light to moderate winds, making the seeing and transparency average to poor at the time these images were taken.

Very low solar activity was observed over the past 24 hours. AR2670 remains quiet in activity with no major flaring activity recorded. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 12.

Some prominences, including a faintly eruptive one at the southeastern limb, were captured on its occurrence in the false-color H-alpha image.

Space weather agencies predicted a persisting relatively calm Sun with slim chance of any serious solar flare or CME activity in the next 24 hours. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.
