Another Cycle 24 Sunspot

Sunspot 1002 was tiny and it lasted less than 48 hours (some big sunspots last more than a month), but it was a real Cycle 24 spot.

Whew. Maybe we in the upper northern hemisphere are not all going to starve and/or freeze to death over the next 15 years. The flux density remains very low and the solar wind is at its lowest point since we started measuring it. What exactly this will mean for our climate is unknown. These things are not, however, related historically to warming here on Earth.
