Huge Solar Storm Just Misses Earth

Huge Solar Storm Just Misses Earth – NOW They Tell Us! | Mysterious Universe: "A report by University of California, Berkeley, and Chinese researchers in the current edition of the journal Nature Communications reveals that on July 23, 2012, two nearly simultaneous coronal mass ejections sent a magnetic storm into Earth’s orbit with a force estimated to have been at least equal to the Carrington Event of September 1-2, 1859, that knocked out telegraph systems – the mass communications network of the time – throughout North America and Europe, with many telegraph operators reporting electrical shocks.

It’s estimated that a solar event of that magnitude hitting Earth today would cause $2.6 trillion in damages worldwide."
