    Yes. Even more suprising was to see it at lat 40 N.
    A specialist in geophysics with whom I spoke this
    morning confirmed that there were unusually
    strong magnetic storms recently.
    (If I knew in advance I'd look at my compass,
    but unfortunately I was completely unprepared to
    see aurora borealis on this latitude, and did not recognize
    what I was seeing yesterday).
    
    Only now I recall that something unusual was going
    on with electric power in my home last night.
    But I did not connect these
    two things then and cannot say that they were related.
