SUNSPOT MONITORING – JULY 23, 2017

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, July 23, 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 Sun has been generally quiet and spotless for five days in a row now. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Some small filaments and prominences were captured on its occurrence at the false color H-alpha image.

With this stance, a persistent calm Sun with minimal chance of any serious solar activity is predicted. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.
