SUNSPOT MONITORING – JULY 5, 2018

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, July 5, 2018.

The sky was hazy (with some clouds passed by) with moderate winds making the seeing and transparency poor at the time these images were taken.

The Sun remains at its spotless and relatively inactive state with 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 tiny filaments across the disk and prominences at the limbs (including a huge unconnected arch one at the southeastern limb) were also seen 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.
