A gigantic solar storm hit Earth about 2,600 years ago, one about 10 times stronger than any solar storm recorded in the modern day, a new study finds.

"...in 1989, a solar outburst blacked out the entire Canadian province of Quebec within seconds, damaging transformers as far away as New Jersey, and nearly shutting down U.S. power grids from the mid-Atlantic through the Pacific Northwest."
i remember that!!!

2,600 years ago they didn't rely on electronics, it would be real devastation to experience a big geomagnetic storm now!

Thanx Freya
