Just stumbled upon this from Nasa via Spaceweather.
The article declares we are finally in solar cycle 24, in the wake of 2 X- class flares in recent months, amongst other activity.
"That was the fastest coronal mass ejection in almost six years," says Angelos Vourlidas of the Naval Research Lab in Washington DC. "It reminds
me of a similar series of events back in Nov. 1997 that kicked off Solar Cycle 23, the solar cycle before this one."
"To me," says Vourlidas, "this marks the beginning of Solar Cycle 24."
For me personally I am very excited to see what this cycle will throw up, as its only in the last year that I have become interested in our sun.
Here is the link to the article.......science.nasa.gov...
Perhaps if there is a link between solar activity and some of the seismic events which occur, then maybe this cycle will give us the insight, and
confirm or deny a correlation.
Be interested what poeple think about this, and what they think cycle 24 could bring
