Meteor shoots across sky between BC and Idaho

There were many reports this morning of a meteor seen flying overhead across British Columbia, Alberta, Washington, Oregon and Idaho around 05:30am local time. The images from the US Forest Service Volcanocam didn't show any signs of the fireball on the images I downloaded last night. Unfortunately, the Volcanocam website is currently down, and I have been unable to access the archived images from last night to check all the images for a sign of the meteor. Until it's back up, we won't know if it was visible from the Johnson Ridge Observatory where the Volcanocam cameras are located.

There's also a video purported to be from the Idaho Air National Guard, at the Gowen Field base in Boise, Idaho recently posted on YouTube, which may be the only images captured of this apparently spectacular sight.
