New observations of low energy (15 to 200 MeV/nuc) cosmic rays from SAMPEX show the strong presence of anomalous cosmic ray (ACR) N, O, and Ne, well before the approaching solar minimum. When compared with ACR temporal variations over the past two solar cycles we find that the 1992 fluxes are ~5 to 10 times their level at corresponding neutron monitor counting rates in 1969-1970 and 1985.
