I haven't heard about a flash. I do have frames from that time, but I can't see anything unusual.
Since I just processed the images for that time I stacked them for another image.
A lot of thin cloud came over during this set, so the image is a bit weak.

Image
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.

Hi Aratus I checked my images and at 3.09am something moves across the at the edge of the limb and next image shows further over and then does not show on the 3rd image afterwards.

Well done to all of you who got something. I just saw a partial phase but was otherwise clouded out.
How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.

I do have a sequence that starts at exacly that second, but of course the computer clock needn't be that acurate, and the first image needn't have been taken at that very moment. Eitherway I don't seem to have the meteor flash. :(
