The sun is actually more violent when it is less active. It is counter-intuitive, but if you look back at the worst solar storms (in terms of terrestrial effects), they typically happen when the sun is at a more quiet part of the cycle.

More experienced members please correct me if I’m wrong, but Basically the solar cycles are just the magnetic field of the sun flipping, causing more activity. Mostly the outcome could be increased aurora activity, and sometimes radio black out for certain frequencies. Although I read somewhere something such as “the Carrington event” happened today it could cause trillions in damage and really mess with our technology for quite a while. Anyways I hope this info helps pit you at ease a bit!

Check out SpaceWeather's archives. Here is one from March 31st this year, looking back 20 years:
That said, look at SpaceWeather's archives for sunspots back in 2001 and thereabouts.
These are the typesof activity solar gazers are waiting for!
