Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, July 26, 2018.

The sky was clear but experienced some intermittent moderate breeze making transparency good but with average to poor seeing at the time these images were taken.

Solar activity remains at its inactive state as the Sun exhibits no visible sunspot regions and the absence of any significant flaring activity recorded over the past 24 hours. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0.  Nothing much to observe in the Sun except for few tiny receding prominences at the limbs and large filament at the Sun’s disk as 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.
