Solar activity on the rise

Solar Cycle 25 is underway. That shouldn’t be news to you right? It was back in September that the NOAA SWPC came out with an official press release that Solar Cycle 25 started December last year. However, our Sun has been relatively quiet during the first few months of the new solar cycle. We had one M-class solar flare back in May and some smaller sunspot regions popping up every now and then but other than that things have been fairly quiet. Nothing out of the ordinary as our Sun slowly starts to ramp up towards solar maximum which should take place in 2025.
