    I've seen a few flashes that weren't Iridiums, but debris such as tanks, or parked older sats. w/ solar panels.

    Supernovas and Novas last for a few days so it's not that.  I like your meteor straight on guess.  More likely a satellite.  Maybe someone else will figure it out.

If it was not a sat then it was probably a meteor......but now I am wondering if it might have been a flash from further out in space?  Maybe it was a nova or some sort of burster but there should be news of this sort of astronomical event, if so.
