33 days seems a long period for this solar minimum so far. Is that the longest spotless period so far for this minimum?

I think it is. The silos site has a 32 day period between July and August in 2009 as the the longest stretch for cycle24.

THE SUN IS SO BLANK, IT LOOKS LIKE A BILLIARD BALL: The sun is blank--really blank. No sunspots have appeared for the past 33+ days, giving the sun the appearance of a giant orange billiard ball. This is a sign that Solar Minimum is under-way. Earlier this year, a panel of experts from NOAA and NASA predicted that the solar cycle would reach its nadir sometime between July 2019 and Sept 2020. The current stretch of spotless suns is consistent with their forecast.

Tracking ahead of last year to the end of June. 

Would be interesting to know what 2008 had to end June. Another couple lf deep periods could see us gunning it.

Appears we had a brief appearance of a cycle 25 sunspot on July 1st?

http://www.spaceweather.com/

and even though its brevity did not alter the 'blank' reporting of that day it was still a formed sunspot.

As the report reminds us the transition to cycle 25 is now underway!

Remains to be seen how fast that transition into SC 25 will be

Indeed!

But like the day after winter Solstice, you know that things are now heading up towards the next solstice?
