Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, July 20, 2018.

The sky was clear with intermittent light air turbulence making the transparency good and seeing average at the time these images were taken.

The Sun remains inactive with no visible sunspot groups present and no significant flaring activity recorded over the past 24 hours. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0.  Some huge filaments and the departing plage of former SIDC Catania active region 89 distinctively captured 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.
