SUNSPOT MONITORING – JUNE 4, 2017

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, June 4, 2017.

The sky was generally partly cloudy and breezy, making the seeing poor, though transparency is good at the time these images were taken.

More C-class flare activity associated with Active Region (AR) 2661 was observed over the past 24 hours, as expected. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 24.

According to the recent Spaceweather and SIDC reports, there could be further solar flare activity (C-class to minor M-class) linked with this AR in the next couple of days, as there’s an occurring magnetic field dissemination within the AR.

The typical solar granulation, plages, and some minor flare outbursts were captured, as shown in the false-color H-alpha image.

We’ll keep monitoring for any significant development.
