The 1859 Carrington Event.

On September 1, 1859, a mighty geomagnetic storm slammed into Earth. Telegraph lines became electrified and set offices ablaze in Europe and North America. The events were observed and recorded by British Astronomers Richard Carrington and Richard Hodgson.

A similar solar storm missed Earth’s orbit by nine days on July 23, 2012. Our current dependence upon technology surpasses the telegraph. [Close f*****g call] is an understatement.

Solar Storm Cycles last 11 years. The current storm cycle will reach its peak in 2025. The geomagnetic waves unleashed by these storms can cripple power grids, jam radio communications, bathe airline crews with radiation, and damage satellites. Sadly, airline pilots and crew are at greater risk for cataracts and miscarriages.
