Some interesting aspects of the table are: Only 3 of the 20 flares occurred prior to the maximum of the cycle (December 1979 for Cycle 21; July 1989 for Cycle 22; and April 2000 for Cycle 23). The year of 1991 was the worst year for large solar flares - 7 of the 20 flares occurred in this year. The month of June 1991 produced most of these entries. The May 1984 was the latest flare in a solar cycle to be included in this list - it was more than four years after solar maximum. The November 1997 flare was the earliest in a cycle to make the list - only 18 months after solar minimum.
