The sun has been eerily quiet for 264 days in a row - just 96 hours short of setting a new record with no surface activity since March 24

The sun is unusually quiet and docile, with no sunspots seen on its surface in 264 days — just four days short of setting a new record.

In 2008, no sunspots were observed for a total of 268 days and if the current period exceeds this it will become one of the deepest lulls of the modern era.
