SUNSPOT MONITORING – JUNE 5, 2017

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, June 5, 2017.

The sky was mostly clear and slightly breezy, making the seeing and transparency good at the time these images were taken.

Active Region (AR) 2661 has been persistent; created further C-class solar flare activity over the past 24 hours, according to Spaceweather and SIDC reports. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 23. It is still being closely monitored for any significant development.

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

Despite of AR2661’s robust activity, solar activity was considered low at this moment.
