New Sunspot Forming! A clue to Cycle 25?

Ok, the cat is out of the bag! There is a new developing sunspot that, by all accounts, will rotate through and cause all kinds of fun. Are we closer to Cycle 25? or another “almost but not quite” situation? When this forms into a mature sunspot, we will tell by the polarization, if it belongs to Cycle 25. If we get these signatures back to back on sunspots after this one, we may be on a roll to the new cycle! In other news… We are being hit by some fast solar wind that is helping in bringing a bit of unsettled geomagnetic conditions to us as this article is being typed. Could be the reason for some flakey propagation lately?
