Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, August 26, 2017.

The sky was clear and experienced intermittent light winds, making the seeing and transparency average to good at the time these images were taken.

Generally low solar activity was observed over the past 24 hours. Both visible active regions AR2671 and AR2672 produced multiple B-class flares which are minor and shall not make any significant effect to Earth. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 39.

Space weather agencies forecast further B-class to C-class (with slight chance for M-class) intensity solar flaring activity to continue in the next few days. The extent of the frequency and intensity of the Sun’s activity will highly depend on the magnetic flux fluctuations happening in the ARs in the coming days. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.
