Well, at least that what my latest model is saying.

The model was made using data from http://sidc.be://sidc.be ,R programming and Facebook's Prophet library

I'm going to take that as good news. I've thought I may not even live long enough to see another sunspot if this minimum keeps hanging in there for a 14 year cycle.

Six more months of minimum? Okay, so is there, by any chance a "Ground-hog" version of Sunspot minimum cycle? So something, I know not what, came out of where-ever it was hibernating/hiding, saw it's shadow and went back into the what-ever it calls it's domicile?

 

Sorry, I just couldn't resist. 

 

Apparently there is not only the 11 year cycle that is well known, but now many heliologists are theorizing that the 11 year cycle is actually part of a much longer more complex cycle.

 

I find it absolutely fascinating that we now have SOHO, the SDO, Big-bear solar observatory and the new solar-scope on top of Haleakala on the Island of Maui. Seeing as the Sun effects us in so many ways including mass-coronal ejects which happen far more often than is comfortable, it is an absolute Must that the Space Weather Centre keeps constant watch on what's happening on good-old SOL.

 

I find your above graph and your sunspot cycle system absolutely fascinating. Hope you don't mind the joke. LOL!

 

Clear skies!

Take a look at the yearly Sunspot attached.

Look at what happened to solar maximums between 1860 and 1953, then look at what's been happening since 1953.

I hope you're wrong.
but unfortunately you don't.
but hey 6 months is not the end of the world.
we have to wait anyway, we have no choice.
thank you for your research.
