“Solar Cycle 25 has roared to life faster than forecasters expected. The sun’s strengthening and increasingly tangled magnetic field repels cosmic rays from deep space. In addition, solar coronal mass ejections (CMEs) sweep aside cosmic rays, causing sharp reductions called “Forbush Decreases.” The two effects blend together to bring daily radiation levels down.”
It’s just a new solar cycle. They occur every 22 years in sync with exponential COSMIC cycles. That said, there is more going on with the exponential cycles. I’ll get to that.
