North Yorkshire shakes and stars shoot.

We felt an earthquake just after 9pm, an unmistakable brief swaying from side to side accompanied by an audible thud.  The British Geological Survey confirmed this soon afterwards. The tremor, magnitude 3.7 was apparently 11km below the surface of the earth just west of Ripon, North Yorkshire.
Also this evening I saw a few meteorites some of which were very bright with trails. All of them moved roughly north to south. They are meteorites associated with the Quadrantid meteor shower which happens annually around this time.
