Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, July 23, 2018.
The sky was clear but experienced moderate to strong air turbulence making transparency good but with poor seeing, at the time these images were taken.
AR2716 has decayed completely in structure, leaving the Sun spotless at this moment. No significant flaring activity recorded over the past 24 hours. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Few huge eruptive prominences, as well as two fairly large filaments at the central portion of the Sun’s disk, were distinctively captured in H-alpha imagery.
Space weather agencies* forecast solar activity to be 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.
