Yes, we saw that while stargazing at Mississinewa Reservoir near Wabash, Indiana. We did not see the meteor, we were looking at a star chart at the time, but the sky was brighter than a full Moon, kinda like twilight when you are thinking about turning on headlights, and it seemed rather blue-white. Only lasted about one second and we could not see any kind of smoke trail. We saw numerous other meteors last night but no others in the spectacular category.

Here is a link to the American Meteor Society report on this fireball.

More than 450 sighting reports - very cool!
