    • I’ve been getting sunspot data from Space Weather. com as far as tracking percent of spotless days and Space Weather is not working on my puter anymore now for days, right when the sun was going to hit 73%.
      I’ve been waiting years for that !! AAAA !! I’m ’bout dizzy from going in revolving doors trying to find the data.
      a) What is the % now ?
      b) Do you have a web link where else I can get that % ?
      c) How high do you guess the % will be for 2019?
      d)What year will that match, roughly ?
      e)What happened to Space Weather.com ? Is it working in Oz?
      They’ve always been so dependable…
      Thanks for any info.
