Thanks for posting this Howard. And we thought the Sun was pretty stable and predictable - hmmm... what goes on inside a place so massive as the sun? We can only make a slightly educated guess!

The sun is showing little activity as the current deep solar minimun continues.  Expert predictions are contradictory, some assert that the new cycle should increase significantly by this year, while other studies show weakening of the solar magnetic field strength that could imply the disappearance of sunspots in the next few years.  For further information, see: http://www.leif.org/EOS/2009EO300001.pdf
Thanks,
