SUNSPOT MONITORING JULY 5, 2017

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, July 5, 2017.

The sky was clear but experienced intermittent light to moderate breeze, making the seeing and transparency fair at the time these images were taken.

No active regions (ARs) were currently present in the Sun. However, there is one seen near the eastern limb which is about to be designated in the next 24 hours as it moves towards Earth view. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 1.

Some filaments, plages, and small flares were captured in the false color H-alpha image.

SIDC and NOAA-SWPC forecast a persisting low solar activity, with minimum chance of any serious solar flare or CME activity.

Close monitoring is being conducted for any significant development.

Overall, solar activity is considered to be very low at this moment.
