SUNSPOT MONITORING – DECEMBER 2, 2017

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, December 2, 2017.

The sky was mostly clear but experienced intermittent moderate to fresh winds making the seeing and transparency poor at the time these images were taken.

Solar activity remains at very low levels over the past 24 hours. With the recent departure of AR2689, there are no sunspot groups were currently visible at the Sun indicating its relatively quiet state without any solar flaring recorded at this moment. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Nothing much happening in the Sun except for some small eruptive prominences at the southwestern limb.

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.
