geomagnetic storm of 1859, for instance, occurred during a solar cycle of about the same size we’re predicting for 2013
We are still in a very early stage to understand our mother star. Could it be than that the less Sunspots the stronger the Emissions?

The sun seems a lot hotter to me lately. A few times I have had to move into shade in the last few weeks because the sun is so hot it feels like it`s burning me. I don`t remember doing that before.
Maybe it`s just my imagination and not relevant, but I thought I`d throw it out there.
Flatfield correction for SOHO MDI The SOHO satellite has been spectacularly successful at imaging the sun, and has now been operating continuously in the harsh environment of space for more than 12 years. In that time the CCD camera and optics have sustained significant radiation damage. We have developed a new technique for correcting the optical and CCD errors, producing a database of flatfields which can be used to reduce the flat fielding errors on the instrument by around a factor of 10. The repository of flatfields is hosted with the main MDI data service at Stanford University: soi.stanford.edu... and is mirrored locally here.
