The Carrington Event of 2012

On July 23,2012,a Carrington Event-class CME struck Earth's orbit.It might have been stronger than the Carrington Event of 1859 itself.Earth wasn't there at the time.Had it been,the damages would be estimated at $2-trillion.
NASA has a Space Weather Workshop every year at NOAA,Boulder,Colorado,for mutual head-scratching and wrecking the backs of envelopes with ball-point pens.
