Did anyone else ntice the brief aurora occurrence on Sunday 2/20 around

I am on a VHF list where people keep a sharp eye out for such things, and
it was noted that a solar wind shock was experienced by the ACE spacecraft
at 2054Z.  Right around this time I was on 20 meters and noticed that for
about half an hour signals other than over the pole started getting that
fluttery aurora sound.  What was really weird was the NOISE on the band
also got fluttery and fluctuated wildly.

Just curious!
