Solar Storm

The Carrington Event in 1859 was the biggest solar storm in recorded history, causing bright drapes of light to be seen from Colorado to the Caribbean. Today, we know more about the science of these storms, but are prepared to handle another significant solar storm?

Rarely these storms have occurred beyond the poles and created huge problems – from short-circuited electrical equipment to transit shutdowns, fires, and satellite disruptions.

Watch the video and learn about space weather forecasts, solar storm mitigation strategies, and predictions of what another Carrington Event would mean for our modern, interconnected planet.
