Aditya-L1 and Chandrayaan-2 have recorded and analysed signatures of the recent powerful solar eruptive events from the Earth, the Sun-earth L1 point, and the moon, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said on Tuesday. A powerful solar storm impacted the earth last week, triggered by the highly active region AR13664. 

According to ISRO, the resulting geomagnetic storm was the most intense since 2003, leading to disruptions in communication and GPS systems. "This is the biggest geomagnetic storm since 2003 in terms of its strength, as the flaring region on the Sun was as big as the historically important Carrington event that took place in 1859," ISRO said in a statement.
