Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, May 24, 2017.
The sky was clear and seeing was excellent at the time these images were taken.
A slight decrease in solar activity was observed. Only the sunspots associated with AR2659 is visible in the white light image while the other active regions (AR2656, AR2658, and AR2660) are still present in the Sun as seen in the false color H-alpha image.
No serious threat for any strong solar flare or coronal mass ejection (CME) activity associated with these ARs is expected, based on the latest SOHO, SpaceWeather, SIDC, and Solar Monitor reports. The latest sunspot number (as per our visual count) is 47.
Numerous plages and prominences can be seen, including the huge ones on the different portions of the false color H-alpha image.
We’ll keep monitoring for any significant development.
