SUNSPOT MONITORING – JULY 25, 2017

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, July 25, 2017.

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

It has been a week observing the Sun spotless on its side facing Earth. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Solar activity has been very low over the past 24 hours with the only presence of a facula near the eastern limb which seems to be gradually developing into a potential active region.

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.
