hmi200

SUNSPOT COUNTS REACH 7-YEAR LOW: The face of the sun has been blank (no sunspots) for 13 consecutive days. The last time this happened was April of 2010, near the end of a deep Solar Minimum. The current stretch of blank suns heralds a new Solar Minimum expected to arrive in 2019-2020.

Spaceweather.com has the details.

    According to Geoff Sharp (@Grand_Minimum , http://www.landscheidt.info‏) SC24 is already at solar minimum conditions. Compared to SC5, it shows lower solar activity.

      Apparently millions upon millions list their lives due to famine and famine related diseases during the Maunder minimum. Could something similar happen today or do we have the agricultural know how to stop it before it gets bad?
