Interestingly, a facebook friend shared a Norwegian’s pic of northern lights taken first week of January.  The poster says:

A Full Sky Aurora Over Norway on January 3 2012 – The display was caused by the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF), which tipped south on Jan. 2nd and partially canceled Earth’s own north-pointing magnetic field. A crack formed in Earth’s magnetosphere, allowing solar wind to flow in and fuel the auroras.
