This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3731-2014
Observer
NameLauren T
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI didn't see the meteor's body or tail, only the effect of the terminal flash in the night sky, as I was in bed facing a (north-facing) window. My sleepy brain for a moment thought the sun was rising... unusually fast. Then there was an even brighter secondary flash, then it faded as quickly as the glow began. Directionality is hard to tell as I really only saw the glow, but I am fairly sure it was moving left to right, while I was facing NNW.
