    Thanks EOC. Too much happening on the solar threads for me to follow this up at the moment. I’ve linked a larger image from your link.

    179yr look backs suggest Indonesia and Hawaii this year.
    Also there was an eruption of Etna in Nov 1832.
    May will very warm, and so will be a peak of activity.
