Don't know if anyone else happened to be outside at about 6pm (UK Time) just now, and saw that meteor streak across the sky? I'm convinced that was it was because of the speed, but if so it's the longest meteor streak I've ever seen.
I caught first sight of it near Cassiopeia, almost right overhead, and it travelled down through Perseus and disappeared behind some clouds near the horizon, (though I glimpsed it through the clouds briefly). I reckon I watched it for around 60 to 70 degrees of sky, though who knows how much it really covered because I didn't necessarily see it appear and disappear.
Definitely not a plane, the ISS or an Iridium Flare...was travelling far too fast. I had eyes on it for about three seconds...enough time to go, "Ooh, look!", to my girlfriend as we were walking the dog, and for both of us to make, "Wow!", and "That's amazing!", type comments.
Hope someone else saw it.
