Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, October 19, 2018.

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

Solar activity remains at very low levels over the past 24 hours. AR2725 has decayed completely, leaving the Sun currently spotless and inactive. No significant flaring activity was recorded by space weather agencies. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0.  Remnant plages associated with the former active regions and few small prominences were observed 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.
