Sunspot cycles are they caused by Venus, Earth and Jupiter syzygies
By Jean-Pierre Desmoulins
Sunspots cycles (11 years period) and the magnetic oscillation of the
Sun's core (22 years period) could be linked, by gravitational effect,
to an external excitation process. Tidal waves on the Sun culminate during
syzygies of the tidal planets. Heliocentric syzygies and oppositions of
Jupiter, Earth and Venus occur in bursts, and plotting these bursts shows
a regular signal, with a 22 years period, in phase with the sunspot cycles
for three centuries. Phase shifts of the "signed sunspots numbers
curve" regarding to this excitation signal induce to think that the
solar oscillator is a nearly unstable non linear system, which could be
forced out of resonance for decades by an overshoot, like for example during
the Maunder minimum of the 17 th century.
