Bright aurora skies appeared all over the U.S. and Europe, as far south as Spain. And had the solar storm coincided with a NASA mission, the particles colliding with the ship would have incapacitated, and possibly killed, the astronauts.

Scientists believe it's one of the top two solar storms in recorded history. FULL STORY
