Solar cycle 25 - promising news

Recommended Posts

Have seen a few rather gloomy reports on future solar activity recently - some even suggesting that the current slump could be with us for decades - so happy to read experts on Space Weather predicting that next eleven year Solar Cycle (25) is now expected to be about as active as Cycle 24 (which was pretty good), and the slow transition between the two cycles should begin between July 2019 and September 2020.

Funnily enough I was just about to post this:

http://www.sidc.be/silso/node/152

Cycle 24 had the lowest Maximum since 1906 and was the fourth smallest maximum on record!

We're also in the third-deepest minimum already and it might not bottom out until September!

Spaceweather also has reported some solar cycle 25 spots already this year.
