THE brightness of the Sun varies during the 11-year solar cycle, typically by less than 0.1% (refs 1, 2), and a larger brightness variation is thought to have occurred during the Maunder minimum, from AD 1645 to 1715 (refs 3–5). But because individual solar cycles are different in form, amplitude and length, and because accurate solar data have been… CONTINUE READING
