krou writes “BBC astronomer Mark Thompson wasn’t having a good night for the BBC’s Stargazing Live show. He turned to the camera to complain of poor cloud visibility and a lack of activity in the sky … only for a meteor to shoot past in the background. A rather sheepish Thompson said, ‘I must admit I was oblivious to it. I think I’m probably the only person in the entire country who didn’t see it.’ (YouTube video of the original live footage).”
