2 Black holes or Neutron stars merging in our galaxy.....
In 2012 researchers found evidence that our planet had been struck by a blast of radiation during the Middle Ages, but there was debate over what kind of cosmic event could have caused this.

Now a study suggests it was the result of two black holes or neutron stars merging in our galaxy.

This collision would have hurled out vast amounts of energy.

the interesting bit is that, if true, this was a merger in our galaxy, in relatively recent times...

the other interesting bit is, that some other scientists think it wasn't a merger but simply an oversized solar flare

it's old news i've done some reserch on this one ,in CE 774 it is noted on anglo saxon chronicle them seeing red crucifix


"A.D. 774. This year the Northumbrians banished their king, Alred, from York at Easter-tide; and chose Ethelred, the son of Mull, for their lord, who reigned four winters. This year also appeared in the heavens a red crucifix, after sunset; the Mercians and the men of Kent fought at Otford; and wonderful serpents were seen in the land of the South-Saxons."

yes, that is old news. but the recent article, linked above, went hunting for possible sources and even references another interesting and recent article.

[link to www.nature.com] :

"Atmospheric 14C production is a potential window into the energy of solar proton and other cosmic ray events. It was previously concluded that 14C results from ad 774–775 would require solar events that were orders of magnitude greater than known past events. We find that the coronal mass ejection energy based on 14C production is much smaller than claimed in ref. 1, but still substantially larger than the maximum historical Carrington Event of 1859. Such an event would cause great damage to modern technology, and in view of recent confirmation of superflares on solar-type stars, this issue merits attention.

Someone go out and bring back a teaspoon of neutron star, will you?
