SUNSPOT MONITORING – AUGUST 5, 2017

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, August 5, 2017.

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

The Sun has been quiet in activity over the past 24 hours. The only present active region AR2670 has been magnetically stable and has not produced any major flaring activity. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 12.

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.
