SUNSPOT MONITORING – JULY 13, 2017

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, July 13, 2017.

The sky was mostly hazy and experienced intermittent moderate breeze, making the seeing and transparency fair to poor at the time these images were taken.

AR2665 has been decaying gradually over the past 24 hours, eased up its activity and now poses no serious threat for any fervent solar activity.

On the other hand, a new sunspot group seen near AR2665 has been designated as AR2666 (per NOAA-SWPC); currently dormant in activity.

The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 51.

Space weather agencies forecast persisting (minor) B-class to C-class flaring activity from these sunspot groups in the following of hours or days. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.

Some small filaments and prominences on the limbs were captured on its occurrence in the false color H-alpha image.
