    Unless someone figures out how to make the cycles shorter (or the peak last longer) then I really don't care...

    I think Pluto is reeking havoc. Ever since they kicked him out, the bands have gone downhill.

    Maybe if someone wiped Uranus the bands wouldn't stink......

    As for the pot smoking theory. Are they claiming Cheech and Chong are implicated?

    This could be true. So those what have wrote rubbish and don't believe. Go out and prove him wrong. I don't disbelieve his theory. but I don't let the cycle bother me. if dx is there its there. if not, so what.

    So that's how that works,I've been trying to figure my wife out, I mean the sun out for a long time now.

    Naw... it isn't weed, it's too much Coke (and maybe not the US version sans cocaine...). LOL!

    Well really, there are several reported cycles regarding the Sun besides the present 22 year "total cycle" as such:

    Sub solar-cycle ~11 years (Schwabe Cycle)
    total solar-cycle ~22 years

    (those two of course being the periodicity between solar min. and solar max as "measured" historically from the sunspot count and more recently via the Solar Flux (2800 MHz) as recorded from Penticton, BC)

    And others: Gleisberg Cycle = ~ 88 years
    DeVries Cycle = ~208 years
    Eddy Cycle = ~1000 years (most of know about Eddy currents...)
    Milankovitch Cycles = Ice-Age cycles - the Sun IS a variable star it has been conjectured)

    With that written, I suppose like much in science, "we" have a lot to learn still...

    Perhaps by Stardate 2350, Mr. Chekov could tell us more and he could also tell us if "Coke" tastes better then... ;-0
