No solar images were taken today, February 21, 2018, due to some important institution-related errands at the proposed time of observation.
Solar activity remains at very low levels over the past 24 hours. No active sunspot regions currently exist on the Sun’s visible disk with no significant flaring activity. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Nothing much happening with the Sun lately except for few tiny prominences and filaments as seen 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.
