WC, I know you've resigned yourself to the idea of having caught daytime aurora, and I think that most probable, but a thought occurs to me. All of the released garbage from Fukushima is in the atmosphere adding to the ionization. Granted I know it is a tiny fraction of atmospheric volume but I am thinking of iron shavings dropped into a magnetic field thereby making the magnetic field lines visible. I picture a similar effect in the atmosphere due to the higher amount of ionizing partliculates suspended "in solution" as it were.
Same for the info from JadedANDCynical...that GESS document is big...and as we know, outdated.
too many will not understand it's content or how to find it. however, earthquake science has advanced by leaps and bounds since the GESS report.
just thought you might like to know ... link 1 ... also, here's a google link for a search page that may allude to other sources of which you may be unaware.
ok, above 3 are not CA related but are the Pacific and also from the recent Japan quake ... this 1 is more direct for the CA region
and this is a decent resource page if you aren't already aware.

Distant Earthquakes Can Trigger Deep Slow Fault Slip From the USGS Website Researchers examining the San Andreas Fault in central California have found evidence that distant earthquakes can trigger episodes of accelerated (but still very slow) slip motion, deep on the fault. Researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey and Georgia Institute of Technology examined the locations and timing of tremor activity following large distant earthquakes. In some cases, they found evidence that triggered slip and its associated tremor migrated along the length of the fault, and persisted long after the passage of seismic waves from the distant earthquake. The scientists hypothesize that distant earthquakes can act as a trigger for ongoing episodic creep events, sometimes altering their timing. The researchers also noted that creep events in other locations can sometimes trigger earthquakes. While they caution that their study was focused on triggered tremor rather than triggered earthquakes, they suggest that prolonged triggered creep episodes could be relevant for both phenomena. In particular, triggered creep episodes could provide a physical explanation for the time delay commonly observed between passing seismic waves and distantly generated earthquakes.
Mexico Quake Studies Uncover Surprises for CA From ScienceDaily New technologies developed by NASA and other agencies are revealing surprising insights into the M7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake that rocked parts of the American Southwest and Mexico in April 2010, including increased potential for more large earthquakes in Southern California. Researchers have found the earthquake is among the most complex ever documented along the Pacific/North American plate boundary. The main shock activated segments of at least six faults, some unnamed or previously unrecognized. It triggered slip along faults north of the border as far as 165 km (about 100 miles) away, including the San Andreas, San Jacinto, Imperial and Superstition Hills Faults, and many faults in California's Yuha Desert. Some of this slip was quiet, without detectable earthquakes. Activity was observed on several northwest-trending faults due for potentially large earthquakes.

Is it just me or did you also find it odd that their only friend is named Madridl? Did Madridl have any videos? I think I will try to check that out. Thank you for the information.
Yeah, that was a dead end, sorry!!!
