Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, July 18, 2017.

The sky was partly hazy and experienced intermittent light to moderate winds, making the seeing and transparency fair at the time these images were taken.

Active regions AR2665 and AR2666 have reached the Sun’s western limb; rotating away from our view completely while still releasing numerous flaring activity over the past 24 hours as observed in H-alpha wavelength. On the other hand in the white-light imagery, the Sun seemed to be spotless at this moment, leaving traces of these ARs through visible plages at the limbs.

The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 20.

With this stance, space weather agencies forecast a relatively low solar activity with chances of minor flaring activity. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.
