SUNSPOT MONITORING – JULY 16, 2017

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, July 16, 2017.

The sky was mostly clear and experienced less air turbulence, making the seeing and transparency good at the time these images were taken.

The two present active regions, AR2665 and AR2666, have kept on gradually decomposing in structure as it approaches the Sun’s western limb. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 28.

With this stance, space weather agencies forecast solar activity to ease up a bit, with minor flaring activity. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.
