SUNSPOT MONITORING – JUNE 25, 2017

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, June 25, 2017.

The sky was clear and with less breeze, making the seeing and transparency excellent at the time these images were taken.

Two active regions, AR2662 and AR2664, are currently present on the Sun. AR2664 remains well-defined while no spots associated with the decaying AR2662 were seen as it is about to reach the western limb. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 25.

SIDC and NOAA-SWPC forecast a persisting low solar activity, with minimum chance of any serious solar flare or CME activity. It was found that there are few new spots popped out with AR2664; signifying a potential increase in flaring activity in the next few days.Close monitoring is being conducted for any significant development.

A large hedgerow prominence at the western limb was captured in the false-color H-alpha image.

Overall, solar activity is considered low at this moment
