SUNSPOT MONITORING – JUNE 28, 2017

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, June 28, 2017.

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

AR2664 remains the well-defined active region currently present in the Sun. It has found that it is gradually decaying, losing a few spots, but released a small amount of B-class flares over the past 24 hours. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 18.

On the other hand, a spotless latent AR, about to rotate into Earth view, was seen at the Sun’s eastern limb which could have produced some flaring activity.

SIDC and NOAA-SWPC forecast a persisting low solar activity, with minimum chance of any serious solar flare or CME activity. In particular, a continuing reduction in solar activity is predicted to take place as AR2664 is about decompose slowly. Close monitoring is being conducted for any significant development.

Overall, solar activity is considered low at this moment.
