SUNSPOT MONITORING – JUNE 20, 2017

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, June 20, 2017.

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

A further decrease in sunspot count was observed over the past 24 hours, as the two active regions AR2662 and AR2663 remains present on the Sun’s photosphere. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 23.

SIDC and NOAA-SWPC forecast a persisting low solar activity; specifically a continuous gradual decay of the two ARs. However, there are reports of a detected AR situated at the Sun’s eastern limb (about to turn towards our view) which was found to exhibit some inferior solar flare or CME activity. Close monitoring is being conducted for any significant development.
