Certainly not an expert, but my own anomaly occured a couple weeks ago when 
I hit the shack to entertain my insomnia late one night.  I turned the rig 
on and was greeted by the quietest band noise I've heard in my 6 years on 
160m.  A soft white noise almost.  I immediately thought that something was 
wrong, but as I tuned around I could hear signals like I've NEVER heard 
before.  I tried for a couple EU stations but no joy.  Within 5 minutes, the 
band noise was back up to the normal S9 and the signals were gone.  I have 
no idea what I experienced that night.  It was Feb. 4 at 0650z.
