Sun Experiences Longest Period of Inactivity in 7 Years

According to reports, the Sun has gone on a two-week drought of sunspots which is the longest stretch since 2010.  The report reveals that the sun is currently blank with no visible sunspots. According to the investigation, it appears that it has been this way for 14 straight days now which results in the longest such stretch since April 2010 according to spaceweather.com.

Excerpt From WUWT:
Historically weak solar cycle 24 continues to transition away from its solar maximum phase and towards the next solar minimum. In April 2010 – the last time there was a two week stretch with no visible sunspots – the sun was emerging from the last solar minimum which was historically long and deep. There have already been 26 spotless days in 2017 (34% of the entire year) and this follows 32 spotless days last year which occurred primarily during the latter part of the year.
