For those of you who follow David Hathaway's Solar Cycle forecasts, it is not looking good for Solar Cycle 25. Solar Cycle 25 is due to start about the end of 2020, nothing dramatic about that, apart from it WILL be lower in its Sunspot count then Solar Cycle 24, and boy oh boy how the numbers are starting to fall!
I have kept track of the Solar Cycle 24 forecasts from David Hathaway, and the latest prediction compared from a year or so ago takes a dramatic fall, no need for me to say any more just take a look......
This is the forecast of Solar Cycle 24 from early 2009
