Carrington and Hodgson were both observing the sunspots when they became the first eye witnesses of a solar flare.

 Sue's "The First Duty - Part 3"
Carrington had gradually grown into the role of Senior American Officer -- not that it was a particularly onerous one at the moment, but being included in the confidences of the other Senior Officers and in occasional formal meetings with the Kommandant had by now become a familiar part of his routine.
Carrington was watching the diminutive figure of the German officer behind the desk; his curiosity about the man was unabated, even though he knew he had been summoned here for no very pleasant reason.
Automatically Carrington observed the courtesies of the situation; however as he strode away with his back rigidly erect and a fierce determination not to succumb to his grief evident in every line of his body it was readily apparent that pleasure was positively the very last thing on his mind at that particular moment.

Carrington is one of the great epic romances, but a romance where sexual congress between the two who are passionately in love with each other has nothing whatever to do with the deep wells of feeling they share with each other.

Carrington rushed from the room to get a witness, but by the time he got back, the white flash was gone.

Later he recognized that the huge aurora to follow may have been related to the remarkable solar flare but was too cautious to make such a bold claim.

Strachey, Carrington, Woolf and most of the other characters in this 1995 film were members of the Bloomsbury Group, all of whom were eccentric British geniuses who explored the dynamics of human relationships in strange ways when they were not busy exorcising their artistic impulses.
Ultimately, the tragedy of their relationship is not the absence of the physical dimension, but, as is often the case with most relationships, the failure of both to articulate the depth of their feelings to the other until fate cruelly rectifies that error.
Carrington is the one who actively engages in the acts of intimacy between them while we have to remind our selves that Lytton's passive acceptance of it is out of a sense of propriety and not a lack of deep feelings.

Carrington drew Player in, kissed him with all the languor and tenderness their previous snatched moments together had denied him if the last few months had taught him anything, it was that Dick was right; this was not merely the answer to an uncontainable urge.

Aware of the threat such storms present to modern, technological society, scientists, supported by federal programs, have worked persistently for a decade to improve forecast tools that predict their occurrence thereby enabling warnings to lessen the impact.
What is now known as the Carrington Event or Carrington Storm was observed when Astronomer Richard Carrington, a member of the Royal Astronomical Society, observing spots on the sun through a telescope, made the first-ever observation of a white-light flare—a huge explosion erupting on the solar surface.
The explosion observed by Carrington signaled the ejection from the sun of an interplanetary hurricane directed at Earth.

However, Sheffield did finally double their advantage on 71 minutes, and again off a Carrington free-kick from the edge of the box, the ball taking a wicked deflection off Cheetham and finding its way into goal with Sprigg stranded at the other corner.
