A talk to explain unusual occurrences of the solar cycle will be held in Horndean

Solar scientist Dr Keith Strong will be visiting to explain the recent changes in the sun’s solar cycle.

A normal cycle lasts 11 years and follows the activity of sunspots which appear as extremely hot, dark spots on the sun. But in recent years, sunspots have been inactive and the cycles are getting longer.

This means England could experience colder winters similar to that of northern Europe countries.

Hampshire Astronomical Group has arranged for Dr Strong to give a talk titled What on Earth is Happening to the Solar Cycle on May 31.

The talk is at Horndean Technology College, in Barton Hall, Barton Cross.

It is at 7.30pm and Dr Strong will be giving his updated research and theories regarding the sun.

Admission is £3.
