Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, September 17, 2018.

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

Solar activity remains at very low levels over the past 24 hours. No significant flaring activity was recorded over the past 24 hours. Some tiny pores were spotted popping out of the Sun’s surface at the encircled location. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 3.  Some eruptive prominences at the limbs as well as several plages and filaments across at the Sun’s disk 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.
