Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, September 22, 2018.
The sky was clear with light to moderate air turbulence making the seeing and transparency average at the time these images were taken.
The visible side of the Sun’s disk still exhibits no sunspot groups and has been relatively inactive with no significant flaring activity as generally very low solar activity has persisted over the past 24 hours. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0. Several small receding prominences at the limbs, as well as tiny filaments and scattered plages 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.
