Solar history made – 1st spotless sun in about 100 years.
Lot of history made in August 2008. This one will probably fly under the radar of most folks. For the first time in about 100 years, we have an entire month in which the sun was spotless. Safe to say we’re at the bottom of cycle 23 now, grin. Full article here.
Some interesting parts in the article, then some are questionable. This comment struck my eye….
“The event is significant as many climatologists now believe solar magnetic activity – which determines the number of sunspots — is an influencing factor for climate on earth.“
Well? The sun and it’s cycles might be responsible for weather changes on earth?? Ah, you think? DUH!
