Welcome all to Issue 25, your editorial team, or at least one half of it, is just about back on track following the bout of debilitating illness on the lead-up to the last issue, and a slight easing of work commitments.

Thanks again to our contributors for all their logs, snippets of info and assorted comments that are incorporated into the NL.

Solar Minimum. Reports from IPS and NASA during 2nd week of Oct announced that “all the sunspots had vanished” , forecasters are of the opinion that this is an indication that the Solar Minimum is going to arrive somewhat earlier than would generally be expected.

The news was then picked up by various other sites / media, some of whom inferred that this was another clear sign of Global Warming !!!!!

Solar activity remained very low / low for most of past 2 months with the odd couple of days rising to moderate and a marked absence of flares. Then on 30 Oct region 691 very unexpectedly became flare active (minor M class activity had been expected from region 693) producing X1, M3, M4 & M5 events and a possible CME.
