    Hi, Steve. The 11 year period thar Corey mentioned is likely referring to the cycle of solar maxima and minima, which is approximately elwven years in length. We will be just coming into solar maximum soon. Assuming we were in solar minimum in 2018 ( I am not sure about that, but it seems reasonable.) . . . then five and a half years from 2018 would put the date at 2023 to 2024, which corresponds to date you referenced above. When I get home I can did up some information about this solar cycle, but even astronomers don’t know whe we are in solar maximum until after we are already in solar maximum. Good thread!
