Fewest Sunspots in a calendar year since 1954

From the NYT:  The Sun has been strangely unblemished this year. On more than 200 days so far this year, no sunspots were spotted. That makes the Sun blanker this year than in any year since 1954, when it was spotless for 241 days.

With 90 days left to go yet this year, the Times may have to revise that headline.
