Honkin' great meteor over Perth tonight

No information from Perth Observatory yet, but I was standing in a crowd in Belmont when an incredibly bright meteor (blue-white head) flashed over heading roughly NW → SE and leaving an orange trail about 15 degrees long.

This thing lit the place up like daylight, even through the clouds, easily drowning out the moonlight and the sportsground illumination, but only lasted a few seconds.
