The forecast consensus: Cycle 25 will peak in July 2025 (+/- 8 months), 
with a smoothed sunspot number of 115. 
Cycle 25 is forecast to be average in intensity and similar to Cycle 24. 
The panel concurred that solar minimum will occur in April 2020 (+/- 6 months). 
If their solar minimum prediction is correct, this would make Cycle 24 
the 7 th longest on record (11.4 years).
