The Ball-of-Light Particle Model predicts that Jupiter is the primary cause of the sun's sunspot cycle. Its orbital motion correlates to the sunspot cycle. Sunspots peak just after Jupiter passes perihelion, the phase of Jupiter's orbit when Jupiter is: moving at its highest rate; when is experiencing its maximum change in direction; when the gravitational force between Jupiter and the sun is creating the maximum gravitational disruption of the sun's core. (Perihelion is point of a planet's orbit where it is closest to the sun.) (See also, Gravitational Induction of an Electromagnetic Wave on the Core of a Star)

The Ball-of-Light Particle Model predicts there would be a specific pattern for the timing of these balls-of-light as the core undergoes its specific decay pattern. This can be seen in the sun spot cycle.

The sunspot cycle -- defined by the number of observed sunspots -- declines for about 5.5 years and increases for about 5.5 years, creating an 11 year solar cycle. (This cycle can range between about 9 to 12.5 years.) Actually, the sun's magnetic polarity flips every 11 years so the sun actually goes through a 22 year cycle.

A record of the number of sunspots goes back to about year 1609-1610 -- this is when Galileo made his first telescope. We currently are in about the 28th recorded cycle.

Solar Eruptions

If a large ball-of-light decays within the envelope, it can eject enveloping material along with its own decay-products, thus creating a solar eruption. The decay-products may include smaller balls-of-light.

"The dark core [of a sunspot] is stirred by movements of matter (hot rising structures with a diameter of about 200 kilometers), 'flashes', etc." (Page 38 of 1)
