    Well this does not surprise me, watching the sun spot cycle, we are on an low activity at dates back 100 or so years! solar output is low and the upper atmosphere has expanded along with the solar wind being low! if you go back 100 years is when we had a mini ice age, the year with no summer and the like! I'm not saying that that will happen but the just looking at the pattern. you can goto and see the history, the all time records follow the low activity in the early 1900's! just food for thought. By the way, the solar cycle low is low, normal is in the 400 day range and we are in the 800 days now! Bob
