Not really, it's well known that the cycles overlay quite considerably as you can see from the chart below, all the cycles overlap.







These overlaps do not mean that when a sunspot of the next cycle appears that the minimum has passed. The prediction of an early peak in cycle 25 as early as 2023 is interesting though, if correct then it will be a short weak cycle as predicted by others.

Getting closer to the 2009 total now. Hopefully this will be a case of history repeating itself; we get a really cold period during 2020/21.

8 more blank days to match 2009, 16 more to match 2008. We're well on course to record the quietest year of the space age, baring any big increase in activity through December.

2018 total: 221 days (61%)
2017 total: 104 days (28%)

2015 total: 0 days (0%)
2014 total: 1 day (<1%)
2013 total: 0 days (0%)
2012 total: 0 days (0%)

We have now matched 2009 with 260 Days blank and are on course to comfortably beat 2008. 2019 will go down as one of the most blank years on record, definitely top 5 and most likely top 2/3.

2019 total: 260 days (76%)
2018 total: 221 days (61%)
2017 total: 104 days (28%)

Edit: Above graph highlights 2018 (Not 2019) but I've included it to show the top 5 blank years to date^

The spotless count would have been higher if the single sub-day "pimples" hadn't been counted as spot days, There have been at least three recent spots that lasted only one day or less.
