I was in bed and missed it but...
Me too but I was awake and noticed a flash in my room (which I usually conclude to be an approaching lightning storm), though this light entered the room instead of just backlighting my curtains and it had a different hue than pure white.
So after a short sleep, I was excited to learn it was a bright meteor, though disappointed I didn't actually see it.
Coincidentally, a few evenings earlier I saw a bright shooting star in the sky (travelling north to south) which I thought to be at a more shallow angle and slower speed than I usually observe. Additionally, it had a second burst of light, as if dimmed behind a thick cloud but the sky was clear as crystal. Perhaps it was a chip off the same block, so to speak.
I was definitely in the land of nod
We are in the window for the Gamma Normid shower...
