This was the WORST Geomagnetic storm to ever hit the Earth

Dot

The strongest geomagnetic storm ever to hit the Earth was on September 1 and 2, 1859, a time where technology was still in its early stage.

The greatest communication system for humans was the telegraph and the entire world relied upon it for receiving information quickly.

However, as the geomagnetic storm struck our planet, the entire global telegraph network failed. It was not just limited to that.

The telegraph operators reported receiving electric shocks upon touching the instruments, telegraph paper spontaneously caught fire

and some equipment started working without being connected to any power source!

The event is now known as the Carrington Event and is the worst recorded instance of a solar storm hitting Earth that was recorded by humans.
