From the Land of Snow to Sun

Dear <<First Name>>,

Considering where I am today, it's hard to believe that just a few weeks ago I was walking to work in a light snowfall. As seen in the picture above, my landscape has dramatically changed from the land of snow to sun. Walking through these desert blooms on Easter weekend with my family, I find myself contemplating how quickly change comes. These quickly growing blossoms are a reminder that next year at this time, we could be witnessing a similar blossoming of Solar Cycle 25. If the past has any bearing on what is in store for us, when the new activity begins, it will come fast. Just like this landscape, there will be no ambiguity, no questioning that change has come. Personally, it will be a huge highlight for me as it will mark our first "tuning of the cycle" celebration together. 

Getting to this week's forecast, we are in a bit of a lull when it comes to solar activity. The monster bright region 2738 that has graced the Sun's face over the past two weeks is finally rotating behind the Sun's limb and a new smaller region 2739 isn't showing much promise. Despite this lull, our night sky is still full of wonder. We are getting hit by the Lyrids Meteor shower due to Earth passing through the debris field of a remnant comet tail. At its peak, we could see as many as 4 to 5 meteors an hour, if dark-sky viewing conditions are clear. So be sure to check your full moon rise and set times if you want to get a good glimpse.

As for me, I celebrate today's holiday with my family and yet I cant help but take a moment to think of our upcoming celebration. Soaking in this sunny landscape with its quickly growing blooms fills me with anticipation for the Sun's coming change. I can't tell you how blessed I feel to be able to share it with you.
