“The 1859 solar storm hit telegraph offices around the world and caused a giant aurora visible as far south as the Caribbean Islands. Some telegraph operators reported electric shocks. Papers caught fire. And many telegraph systems continued to send and receive signals even after operators disconnected batteries, NOAA said on its website.”
The A index is 27, (What happened yesterday) this is a very high figure. Fortunately the K index is back down to 1 today.
