SUNSPOT MONITORING – JULY 29, 2018

No solar images were taken today, July 29, 2018, due to unfavorable weather condition (dusty weather) at the proposed time of observation.

Solar activity remains at very low levels over the past 24 hours. No active sunspot regions currently exist on the Sun’s visible disk with no significant flaring activity. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Several huge eruptive hedgerow prominences, especially at the western limb courtesy of the huge filament seen departing were 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.
