There Goes the GPS — 1945 and Now — Geomagnetic Storm

“S___ (My given name starts with S ),
Thanks for calling. My computer is sill in the shop, so I am using
Louise’s lap top. Your connection was a real roller coaster in volume!
It was difficult to get a full sentence. I guess the storm is working
it’s magic on the wires. When I flew across the Atlantic Ocean in
1945, the whole northern hemisphere was a bright green. I needed three
stars 120 degrees apart to get a good position, but the Aurora blanked
out all the stars to the north! I had to settle for three stars only
30 degrees apart to the southern hemisphere. But that worked and I
stayed on the proper course to arrive on time at the exact right spot
in Scotland  …….

Just before noon on September 1st 1859, the British astronomer Richard Carrington witnessed the largest solar flare ever recorded. The solar flare ejected a plasma cloud that traveled from the surface of the Sun for just over eighteen hours before finally reaching the Earth. As the dawn broke on September 1 1859, the skies all over planet Earth erupted in red, green, and purple lights so brilliant that newspapers could be read as if it were daylight. 

Stunning northern lights pulsated at the tropical latitudes over Cuba, the Bahamas, and Jamaica. 

Telegraph systems worldwide went haywire. Spark discharges shocked telegraph operators and set the telegraph paper on fire. Even when the telegraph operators disconnected the batteries powering the lines, electric currents in the wires still allowed messages to be transmitted.

A sun storm of this sort today could cause billions of dollars of damage to the Earth’s satellites and terrestrial power grids. And disrupt radio and cell phone communications.

In the 160-year recorded history of geomagnetic storms, the Carrington event is the biggest.
