The Earth Was Almost Fried Back in 2012

A massive solar storm in July 2012 was more intense than thought—and it blasted right through the Earth’s orbit. Luckily for us, we were on the other side of the sun, thus missing the chaos completely. But if that storm had hit this beautiful little blue marble in space? “The solar bursts would have enveloped Earth in magnetic fireworks matching the largest magnetic storm ever reported on Earth, the so-called Carrington event of 1859,” Science Daily reports.

These “fireworks” could have knocked out our electrical grid and satellites, leaving us in a global darkness without telecommunications or GPS, potentially for years.

Imagine huge rolling dragons of color surging toward the tropics, burning for hours above Miami, Rome, Riyadh, Jakarta, Mexico City, visible on the horizon from camping sites in the Andes and the Himalayas, looping over the pyramids, an ocean of magnetic energy passing through the clouds, a kind of planetary-scale TV broadcast of pure, apocalyptic power roaring all around us as the lights go out.
