Honestly, this thread is interesting with regards to looking at the data, but no, there is no threat on the horizon based on this data. It sounds like
a few people in this thread are really cherry picking with their words and are in awe of just how-things-work. There is little to nothing to be
concerned about, and what we're seeing now is normal, I assure you.
Whether the Sun will break out in a few weeks or few months with 150-200 sunspots, I don't know, and you don't either. The Sun is one of those
things that works more random than we'd like to believe. What you might get in rotation might be totally different than the other when things are
easing toward the peak of the Sun cycle. Right now we're experiencing a "low" period, and we were experiencing a coronal hole stream.
CH501 will affect us soon as well, to which things will become more unsettled again.
The induction of energy that you see as mysterious appears normal to me, though an unknown induction of energy is not unheard of, but the coronal hole
stream was the baddie here earlier. It's not just flares, magnetic filaments can erupt and can send a whirl of wind and plasma our way, too.
The "Where're the Flares" could be hinting at the telemetry or other measuring tools having had experienced downtime or have went down for reasons
unknown. This is not unheard of.
