It could not have been observed and appreciated by a better astronomer and  
friend, way to go David.

Dear  friends,

On the morning of 2013 October 12, at approximately 10:30 UT I  
observed a brilliant fireball as follows:

Magnitude  estimate:  minus 9
Very long, moderate and graceful movement from SW  to SE.  After major 
flash, the remnant gradually continued  southeastward for a few 
seconds before fading away.

Because the Eta  Cetid shower is already known for producing bright 
fireballs, including a  Magnitude -20 one on 1969 9 October, I suspect 
that what I saw is a member  of this stream.
