Did anyone see this fireball over Perth at approximately 6.00 am on Monday morning?

It was supposed to be very large and they are trying to work out where, or if, it landed.

I was not awake at 6 am so did not see it however a friend of mine who used to work at the Sydney Observatory sent me an email asking if I had seen it.

This was indeed funny as she is my travelling companion and knows I woudl not be up in winter at 6 am looking at the sky!

The image was recorded by Curtinís Fireball Network camera at Badgingarra and the article I was sent is as follows:
The observation is consistent with an extraterrestrial rock coming through the atmosphere, and the Fireball Network crew are hard at work to determine whether and where a meteorite is likely to have landed. In the meantime we would love to hear from anyone else who saw this event.

I'm also never up that early in the cold weather.
That would have been awesome. Had I have known about it I probably would have made an effort to get out of bed!
Wish I knew about it...it was a clear sky too so it would have a spectacular sight.
No, I unfortunately missed it!
