    From spaceweather.com:

    "A new sunspot several times wider than Earth is rotating over the sun's eastern limb today. This brings the sunspot count to its highest level in years, and more sunspots appear to be in the offing. Solar Cycle 25 is clearly gaining steam."

    Glad to see it!

    The Sun is the star at the center of the Solar System. It is a nearly perfect sphere of hot plasma, heated to incandescence by nuclear fusion reactions in its core, radiating the energy mainly as light and infrared radiation. It is by far the most important source of energy for life on Earth. Wikipedia

    It is actually the only source of energy for life on earth (aside from a small amount due to nuclear fission in the earth's interior and residual heat from the still cooling earth). Even petroleum is frozen sunshine.

    Funny that our heat source is actually delivering us less and less W/m2. The very truth is that we are on the verge of a glaciation era. Nuclear Waste Management Engineers know it and their concern is «What to do to ensure our nuclear waste stays safe during the glaciation era and afterwards»

    That wasn't bad but I've been hoping for a repeat of cycle 19 in my lifetime. If 25 don't do it I probably won't.
