Parker may have been wasted, there is absolutely nothing to see at the moment.

I reckon that the sun is building up to a humongous display of spots when they do reappear. Stand by for some fantastic aurorae and possible substation burnouts!

Deep in the Boonies in the central Sierra Nevada mountains of California.
Finally......Is the Sun waking up? It's been a very long time for any Sun spot activity, some were wondering if the Sun had shut down or gone off the boil.

I check this web site every morning, to see if I need to get the lead lined suit out.
