They usually happen in May (at aphelion) or November (at perihelion), and the latter come more frequently. Transits may also be partial and only seen in certain countries. They’re occurring later as the orbit changes. In the early 1500s, they were observed in April and October. 54 times the size of Mercury.

More than 30 years later, Messenger became the second spacecraft to visit Mercury. Before entering the planet’s orbit, it performed one flyby of Earth, two of Venus, and three of Mercury.

Indeed, the strange features of Cycle 24 illustrate the difficulty of making predictions about the Sun’s behaviour, as Dr de Toma points out: “Cycle 24 was the first time that physical models of the Sun were used to predict a solar cycle. Before that, the solar cycle strength was usually predicted using simple correlations between sunspot numbers and other solar activity proxies, or by extrapolating recent solar behaviour into the future. Solar cycle models are still relatively simple, and in spite of the progress in recent years in modelling the solar cycle as a hydromagnetic dynamo process, we still do not have a realistic solar dynamo model.
