Going, Going Gone !

If you have looked or photographed the sun using protective equipment then you may have noted that twice this month there has been no sun spots on the surface of the Sun. That is bad news for all aurora watchers, where ever you are.

The lack of Sun spots mean that we are entering a Solar minimum and the number of hours, days, months and even  up to a year we may not see any sunspots. It is expected that 2019 / 2020 will be the lowest period in the 11 year cycle.
