No solar images were taken today, March 25, 2018, due to time constraints regarding some important institution-related errands.
Solar activity remains at very low levels over the past 24 hours. No active sunspot regions currently exist on the Sun’s visible disk. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Some eruptive prominences at the limbs and a tiny filament in the southern hemisphere were clearly seen in H-alpha imagery.
Space weather agencies* forecast solar activity to remain at very low levels with chances of weak X-ray fluxes or flares ranging up to B-class intensity. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.
