Watch This When You're High - The Carrington Event
Big shout out to @ke7ins_tra7els for this suggestion.
"Dante- have a good "watch this when you're high" topic. In light of all the Aurora Borealis going on lately check out the Carrington Event."
The Carrington Event was the most intense geomagnetic storm in recorded history, peaking from the 1st to the 2nd of September 1859 during "solar cycle 10". It created strong auroral displays that were reported globally and caused sparking and even fires in multiple telegraph stations. The geomagnetic storm was most likely the result of a coronal mass ejection (CME) from the Sun colliding with Earth's magnetosphere.
The geomagnetic storm was associated with a very bright solar flare on 1 September 1859. It was observed and recorded independently by British astronomers Richard Christopher Carrington and Richard Hodgson—the first records of a solar flare.
A geomagnetic storm of this magnitude occurring today would cause widespread electrical disruptions, blackouts, and damage due to extended outages of the electrical power grid.
Keep the suggestions coming. Keep them classy. No butt stuff.
