Our quiet sun

| No Comments

Spaceweather takes note of our quiet sun:

Today, the sun racked up its 198th spotless day of the year. So far in 2019, the sun has been blank 73% of the time. This is the same percentage as the year 2008--previously the least sun-spotty year of the Space Age. If Solar Minimum continues to deepen, 2019 will soon claim the undisputed throne of Space Age spotlessness, marking it as a century-class minimum in solar activity.

Sunspots are a measure of solar output. Low numbers = low output. This explains the record early snowfalls, the colder weather, the fact that Glacier National Park had to quietly remove a bunch of signage.

Looking at global cooling, not warming. Anyone who tells you differently is running on narrative and not facts.
