The sky was hazy with moderate to fresh warm southwesterly wind making the seeing and transparency poor at the time these images were taken. Here is today’s visible solar imagery taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, September 5, 2018.

The Sun remains spotless and relatively inactive with no significant flaring activity recorded over the past 24 hours. The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 0.

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.
