This view of the Sun was taken on the 26th December and it had a message for all of us to see.......no, not that one:)......there is still not much going on in the way of lots of visible Sunspots, and yet we are supposed to be heading into a solar maxima during the fall of 2013.
Time will tell if the Sun will take an upturn to help out the NASA forecast but on current trends our Sun looks to be taking a holiday. Lets hope it's vacation will not be for the forecast made by Piers Corbyn, he says it could be for two or three decades. If it does that our world will be a lot cooler then it has been for the past 50 or so years......come back Global Warming all is forgiven
