Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, September 1, 2018.

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

No sunspot regions currently exist in the visible side of the Sun. The unnumbered potential active region spotted yesterday did not develop into a significant active region and no visible sunspot detected. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Plages associated with the previous unnumbered active region at the eastern side, and few eruptive prominences at the limbs  were distinctively captured 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.
