Analysis of the sun has revealed that there has been a sharp decrease in the amount of sunspots this year.
Sunspots release solar flares and vast amounts of magnetic energy.
For the fourth time this year, the sun has gone blank, which has led some experts to believe that a new Ice Age is on the horizon and could hit us by 2019.
According to SpaceWeather.com, the occurrence of a spotless sun is going to become more regular.
