SUNSPOT MONITORING – JULY 6, 2018

Due to unfavorable weather condition (suspended dust and partly cloudy skies bringing poor visibility) at the proposed time of observation, no solar images were captured.

Solar activity remains at very low levels over the past 24 hours. No active sunspot regions currently exist on the Sun’s visible disk. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0.  Space weather agencies reported either a filament eruption or a minor CME event at the limbs which will be verified after further investigation of satellite imageries.

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.
