‘Solar clock’ could predict rhythms of weather in the sun’s cycle

For 400 years sunspots have been used to measure the sun’s cycle, but a newly suggested ‘circle of fifths’ system could predict dangerous and violent solar events years in advance.

New research suggests that a ‘solar clock’ based on the sun‘s magnetic field could be a more precise way of predicting dangerous solar flares that threaten communications systems on Earthyears in advance.
