[quote:Orisos:MV8yMDg4ODYwXzM1MTcyNDQ4X0Q4Njc2Mjg5] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_storm_of_1859 On September 1–2, 1859, the largest recorded geomagnetic storm occurred. [b]Aurorae were seen around the world, even over the Caribbean; those over the Rocky Mountains were so bright that their glow awoke gold miners, who began preparing breakfast because they thought it was morning. People who happened to be awake in the northeastern US could read a newspaper by the aurora's light.[/b] Telegraph systems all over Europe and North America failed, in some cases [b]shocking telegraph operators[/b]. Telegraph pylons threw sparks and telegraph paper spontaneously caught fire.[b] Some telegraph systems continued to send and receive messages despite having been disconnected from their power supplies.[/b] On September 3, 1859, the Baltimore American and Commercial Advertiser reported, "Those who happened to be out late on Thursday night had an opportunity of witnessing another magnificent display of the auroral lights. The phenomenon was very similar to the display on Sunday night, though at times the light was, if possible, more brilliant, and the prismatic hues more varied and gorgeous. The light appeared to cover the whole firmament, apparently like a luminous cloud, through which the stars of the larger magnitude indistinctly shone. The light was greater than that of the moon at its full, but had an indescribable softness and delicacy that seemed to envelop everything upon which it rested. [b]Between 12 and 1 o'clock, when the display was at its full brilliancy, the quiet streets of the city resting under this strange light, presented a beautiful as well as singular appearance.[/b]" [/quote]

The only other reference I can find to magnetic froth is magnetic froth found at the edge of our solar system:
