Title: Sunspot number prediction

Description: A graph of solar sunspot number with time, allowing for predictions to be made for solar activity in cycle 24

Maker:  Claire Dowling

Techniques used: Embroidery

Inspiration: "I have always been interested in our Sun, especially the impact space weather has on the Earth and resultant phenomena such as the Aurora Borealis and Australis. I thought it would be nice to embroider a graph rather than an image as the data shows the complexity of solar activity nicely, and its cyclic nature."
