I guess I was reacting to the recent old archive.  The awesome  movie makes it abundantly clear how saturated the sensors were at that particular time!! 

I might add only that the more we learn as adults ( from real scientists) the less fear we have as adults, then are able to stand in awe at the beauty before us.

Thanks. That video took a long time to make. Glad people still enjoy it. Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hABmdvKReNo

It is actually 19 years ago and estimates range from X28 to X45.

It's the most powerful solar flare in modern history, right?

That's what i have heard at least
