    Just a few pics from early this morning at West Sands, St. Andrews  First one was 100iso eq @ f1.8 and 10 sec exposure, strong moonlight about midnight with the faintest of hint of an aurora.

    More shots here from Scotland last night. Fingers crossed again tonight as there is another predicted Kp7 ☺

    Only 2 more and it will be officially described as one of the deepest minima since..... (not that it changes much!).

    How many more days before it challenges the 1911 -14 cycle? Looks like we are past the 1875 low cycle now.

    I make it that about 60 are required to challenge the total number of sunspots achieved in the 1911 cycle.

    Copying in SB's post of last month for reference   ---------------.    

    Yes, 1913 is the winning year at 311 and indeed it is the only other cycle in the last 170 years to produce 3 years above 200. It also had a sluggish start with 150 sunspots in 1914 in year 4 of its minima. It's worth saying that timing is a factor in making that cycle look deeper, our years 1 and 2 (2018 and 2019) were deeper so at 200 sunspots this year we'll only end up ~80 behind. 

    Technically the previous two solar cycles also had 4 years at 100+ but i tend to exclude them as year 1 in both cycles barely made it so in the satellite age they'd have been discounted. 

    The other odd strong cycle was the 1875-1879 minima which was notable for having 5 years at 100+. It also either has missing data for 1877 or had a strange double minima.

    ------------ 

    Anyone got access to the actual figures recorded?

    Strictly speaking the official number is usually 5-15 lower.

    Unfortunately both spots have been declared albeit they are small and weak.

    This cycle seems very slow to get going. 

    Think we can assume another very quiet cycle?

    Well, let’s hope so  CC.  Would give us another shot at a cold winter for 2021/22!
