Abstract: The LASCO-C2 coronagraph onboard SOHO continues its white-light imaging of the corona from 1.5 to 6.0 solar radii, thus allowing investigating the consequences of the weak Solar Cycle 24 on the corona and comparing it to the previous cycle (23). Temporal variations of the global radiance of the corona are presented. We pay particular attention to the mid-term variations which are distinctly different between the two cycles and highlight the similarities and differences. Finally, we rely on our ARTEMIS II catalog of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) to compare their global rates during these two cycles.
