    Spotless again today and F1o flux below 70. These single days are usually 11 or 12 makes you wonder if they would have been remotely visible using the old method!!
  2. If people can't make an argument or comment without swearing then I would question their ability to put together a sensible point!!

  4. September 23rd The End?.

    Whatever we think about these predictions there is some merit in looking at external influences on our planet that can lead to major events on earth. We know now that a significant decrease in the protection the sun's magnetic field gives earth from cosmic rays and neutrino's can increase activity in the earth's core thus increasing volcanic and earthquake activity. We know we are entering a significant period of lower activity not seen for the better part of 2/3 hundred years so yes we could see increase in disasters. Planetary/star alignment alluded to could well have coincided with a low sun phase or may well have had there own influences on earth. We know so little. So I'm not saying its true and what the press reports is not what the man himself is saying at all but looking at history and words from various religions does sometimes make you wonder what planet earth has in store for us let alone the humans themselves.

    Correct given 2680 appears to be waning and the count yesterday was 11 and today is 22

    yes spotless tomorrow or day after. F10 flux after being up to 120+ is now back down to low 70's I think we may well see these sudden spikes in activity in an otherwise sleepy sun over the next 3/4 years

    I would imagine the so called spot with a count of 12 will be gone tomorrow and back to spotless

    looks to be considerably lower than that predicted for cycle 24

    Is there any way we can compare day time average and night time average to see where the driver for above average temps lie because it certainly doesn't feel like its day time temps?
