SUNSPOT MONITORING – MARCH 28, 2018

Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, March 28, 2018.

The sky was clear with intermittent light to moderate air turbulence making the seeing and transparency average at the time these images were taken.

The Sun remains spotless and inactive with no significant flaring activity recorded over the past 24 hours. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0.  Few tiny prominences at the eastern and southeastern limb were distinctively captured. One of them (situated on the eastern limb) could be from a far side active region about to rotate into Earth-view in the coming few days.

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.
