We’ve only had ten sunspots since January 8th of this year, only two of them arguably linked to the way overdue Cycle 24.
Thanks, but I know. I check with the site often. The solar cycle still has a couple of years before it starts to get really active again, although the new cycle (cycle 24) has in fact already started. This happened about a month or so ago when a high latitude sunspot pair appeared with reversed magnetic polarity. The sun's magnetic flips on a regular 11-15 year cycle.
