Thanks for the reminder.  If my Vue console wasn't banished to the networking closet for bad behavior, I probably would have seen that on there.  Oh well, it's raining anyway.  (Not a surprise for Seattle in January)

I didn't especially get up to see this, but did spend 5 minutes looking out of a skylight  (4am GMT) and spotted a very bright meteor.

Wish I'd of been more coherent to watch a bit longer and try to get some photos :(
