Solar Cycle 25 could be a bumper one!

    Interesting article. So far, it seems to be just finding a pattern in relatively random data. I don't see any theory or proposed mechanism behind it. Will it keep going or it will in disappear into the noise like so many other ephemeral patterns you can find in random data. Won't take more than a couple of years to find out.

    The "terminator event" seems real enough; whether it predicts (or foretells) a stronger cycle (25) than the last remains to be seen. At least, we are finally on the upswing of Cycle 25. so propagation HAS to get better!

    Right. It's real, and so are solar cycles, but the correlation can easily be just random noise. It's like streaks in gambling. If there are no streaks in something that is supposed to be random, it's not random. Toss a coin. If it lands heads every other toss, it's not random. If it's random, it'll sometimes land heads 3 times in a row, sometime 8 times in a row, and even (very rarely) not in 10 tosses. Is the correlation between the terminators and solar cycle just a random streak, or is there actually a causal relationship?

    I still can't shake the feeling that Cycle 25 is going to be weak -like the last one.

    I think it will be Strong...

    It is currently running higher than predicted, I hope that continues.

    Later today I will be making an offering to the Propagation Gods.
