The Sun Kings: The Unexpected Tragedy of Richard Carrington and the Tale of How Modern Astronomy Began

In September of 1859, the entire Earth was engulfed in a gigantic cloud of seething gas, and a blood-red aurora erupted across the planet. This title presents the story behind Carrington's observations of a mysterious explosion on the surface of the Sun and how his brilliant insight helped to usher in the modern era of astronomy.
