A summer without sunspots
The sun is undergoing a remarkable period of spotlessness.
During northern summer 2019, the face of the sun was blank (no sunspots) more than 89% of the time.
This marks it as one of the deepest Solar Minima in a century. Interestingly, the summer of 2019 also brought a sign that Solar Minimum is coming to an end.
