How big was it compared with a full moon in the sky? I didn't know about it. Meteors strike the atmosphere all the time. But that one might have been too fast to take pic of, or look at thru your telescope.

I would've thought telescopes were bad for meteor showers. Like trying to snipe a bullet out of the air without knowing where the next shot is coming from.
Otherwise if a telescope is liable to find one or two by sheer chance I'll be sure to set mine and my camera up the next clear night shower I get.
