SUNSPOT COUNTS HIT 7-YEAR LOW: The face of the sun has been blank (no
sunspots) for 13 consecutive days. The last time this happened was in April
of 2010, near the end of an historically deep Solar Minimum.  The current
stretch of blank suns heralds a new Solar Minimum expected to arrive in
2019-2020.  What does this mean for space weather? Answers may be found on
today's edition of Spaceweather.com.
 
VENUS AT INFERIOR CONJUNCTION: This week, Venus will pass almost directly
between Earth and the sun--an event astronomers call "inferior solar
conjunction."  As it turns its night side to Earth, the planetary disk
of Venus is transforming into an exquisitely slender crescent easily seen
through small telescopes or binoculars.  Visit Spaceweather.com for photos
and observing tips.
