2010 Sunspots

SS: in the above sunspot plot we see we are still flat lined. we have been flat lined to long . we should be well into the solar maximum by now . we are starting to see a small amount of flaring but it is still very minimal .. this time last year we saw the Bastille Day Storm on July 11th 2000 which released three x-call flares in a row resulting in a very intense geomagetic storm upon the earth .. we are nowhere even close to see these kinds of flares come from the sun today .. below is the plotter map for this time last year where we should be:


What's wrong with the sun?  14 June 2010 SUNSPOTS come and go, but recently they have mostly gone. For centuries, astronomers have recorded when these dark blemishes on the solar surface emerge, only for them to fade away again after a few days, weeks or months. Thanks to their efforts, we know that sunspot numbers ebb and flow in cycles lasting about 11 years.

But for the past two years, the sunspots have mostly been missing. Their absence, the most prolonged for nearly a hundred years, has taken even seasoned sun watchers by surprise. "This is solar behaviour we haven't seen in living memory," says David Hathaway, a physicist at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

The sun is under scrutiny as never before thanks to an armada of space telescopes. The results they beam back are portraying our nearest star, and its influence on Earth, in a new light. Sunspots and other clues indicate that the sun's magnetic activity is diminishing, and that the sun may even be shrinking. Together the results hint that something profound is happening inside the sun. The big question is what?


SS: as you can see we should be well into solar maximum by now .. so what is going on this solar maximum that we are so late and barely able to get going ?? well surprisingly we do know the answer. according to my white sun t-tauri star research the cause of the phenomena is due to more space dust entering into the inner solar system due to how the magnetic field did not completely flip during the last solar cycle leaving the magentic field at the equator rather than the poles .. the sun has lost it's north and south polarity .. the configuration allows more space dust to pour in from the mayan hunab ku region or or otherwise known as direction of our solar systems core . . the space dust is choking the sun because the sun is feeding on it .. here you can see the sun does feed on a gas:


SOHO's latest surprise: gas near the Sun heading the wrong way

20-Nov-2001 " Mysterious clouds of gas falling towards the Sun have been spotted with the ESA-NASA SOHO spacecraft. They go against the fast-moving streams of gas that pour out continuously into space, in the solar wind. In today's issue of Astrophysical Journal Letters, the scientists who found them suggest that the inflows are due to frequent local adjustments to the Sun's magnetic field. The discovery promises a better understanding of the sources of the solar magnetism that envelops the Earth, quarrels with our own planet's field, and to some extent protects us from cosmic rays coming from the stars.

Ulysses Sees Increase In Galactic Dust Counts

" The reversal always occurs during solar maximum. That’s when the magnetic field is highly disordered, allowing more interstellar dust to enter the Solar System. It is interesting to note that in the reversed configuration after the recent solar maximum (North negative, South positive), the interstellar dust is even channelled more efficiently towards the inner Solar System. So we can expect even more interstellar dust from 2005 onwards, once the changes become fully effective. "


SS: this is exactly what happens to t-tauri stars .. they are choked by space dust from their proto-planetary discs . this space dust is fuel to the stars .. during the suns proto star period it feeds on the space dust until it eventually ignites into the sun pushing the proto-planetary disk out to the oort cloud where it is now . however, due to the magentic field of the sun change from the last solar cycle space dust is now entering the solar system and choking the sun and it is feeding on it .


Roughly half of T Tauri stars have circumstellar disks, which in this case are called protoplanetary discs because they are probably the progenitors of planetary systems like the solar system. Circumstellar discs are estimated to dissipate on timescales of up to 10 million years. Most T Tauri stars are in binary star systems. In various stages of their life, they are called Young Stellar Objects (YSOs). It is thought that the active magnetic fields and strong solar wind of Alfvén waves of T Tauri stars are one means by which angular momentum gets transferred from the star to the protoplanetary disc. A hypothesised T Tauri stage for our Solar System would be one means by which the angular momentum of the contracting Sun was transferred to the protoplanetary disc and hence, eventually to the planets, resulting in the theory that before our own Sun matured, it was once a T Tauri star.


SS: so what do we expect to happen ?? well NASA is telling us that one possibility is a little ice age and if this is true we need to look at La Violette's prediction more closely ..


What's wrong with the sun?  14 June 2010 Mike Lockwood at the University of Reading, UK, may already have identified one response - the unusually frigid European winter of 2009/10. He has studied records covering data stretching back to 1650, and found that severe European winters are much more likely during periods of low solar activity (New Scientist, 17 April, p 6). This fits an emerging picture of solar activity giving rise to a small change in the global climate overall, yet large regional effects.

Another example is the Maunder minimum, the period from 1645 to 1715 during which sunspots virtually disappeared and solar activity plummeted. If a similar spell of solar inactivity were to begin now and continue until 2100, it would mitigate any temperature rise through global warming by 0.3 °C on average, according to calculations by Georg Feulner and Stefan Rahmstorf of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany. However, something amplified the impact of the Maunder minimum on northern Europe, ushering in a period known as the Little Ice Age, when colder than average winters became more prevalent and the average temperature in Europe appeared to drop by between 1 and 2 °C.

What the sun will do next is beyond our ability to predict. Most astronomers think that the solar cycle will proceed, but at significantly depressed levels of activity similar to those last seen in the 19th century. However, there is also evidence that the sun is inexorably losing its ability to produce sunspots (see "The sunspot forecast"). By 2015, they could be gone altogether, plunging us into a new Maunder minimum - and perhaps a new Little Ice Age.


Prediction No. 8 (1983): In his dissertation, LaViolette proposed that invading cosmic dust would have caused the Sun to become more luminous and engage in continual flaring activity. In chapter 4, he suggested that on one occasion the Earth and Moon may have been engulfed by a large prominence remnant "fireball" (coronal mass ejection) thrown out by the Sun during a period of particularly intense solar activity. He interpreted the findings of Zook and Gold as evidence that the Sun had been in a highly active T-Tauri like flaring state and that at times its flaring activity had been as much as 1000 times currently observed levels. He suggested that these may have scorched the surface of the Earth in ice age times, inducing high temperatures, rapid ice sheet melting, global flooding, and mass animal extinction.


Solar Dynamics Observatory: The 'Variable Sun' Mission February 5, 2010: For some years now, an unorthodox idea has been gaining favor among astronomers. It contradicts old teachings and unsettles thoughtful observers, especially climatologists.  "The sun," explains Lika Guhathakurta of NASA headquarters in Washington DC, "is a variable star."
