Solar flux is now at 65.7 pretty much as low as you can get.

That's observed flux though. The adjusted flux is 67.7 which ranks about #300 in this cycle minimum. The lowest adjusted flux reading for this cycle so far is 64.3 on the 9th Nov 2017. The lowest reading during the previous minimum was 63.6 (8th Nov 2007).

Do we actually know yet the actual point of solar min in this cycle?

my understanding is that we only know the absolute minimum precisely in retrospect - when extrapolated back from increased SS No's and a sort of V graph is created to show cross over point from descending No's to ascending No's. Or similar!

Yes i have read that, its important for building winter analogues, but there is a lag effect, if min has only just been reached then that isn't the very best signal for a blocked winter, if its significantly past the date solar min, like a year, then that is the best signal solar wise for a cold UK winter.

yes I think it's almost like with a SSW it's not an instant response, although I guess if the sun blew altogether we'd know about it about 8 minutes later. These changes are more subtle and take time to change the existing momentum within the system(s).

We had another spot?

yes it lasted two days with a count of 12 and 11 in days gone by it wouldn't have been seen

do we know was it characteristic of SC 24 or SC 25 polarity wise?

You can't know it until (at least) 6 months after it's happened because it is defined as the lowest value of the 13-month smoothed monthly SSN mean. Given the dearth of spots in the past couple of months, it's unlikely that we are quite there yet.
