I only checked my 4.5 Hz geophones, since I would expect that
frequency to be closer to what to expect than the range of the Lehman.
So I just checked the Lehman.  What I have is moderately noisy,
probably due to windy condition on the west coast of Norway 500 km
away.  There's nothing standing out, except one blip at 06:31UTC.

I was looking for something lasting a little while, not something sub
second, but on the other hand I have no idea what to expect from a
fireball event.  The geophones do not have this blip at the same time.

I think the meteor event happened at 03:22UTC (but I've seen various
statements).  The distance is roughly 3000 km.  So 06:31UTC seems much
to late anyway.  If the Lehman is sensitive to small barometric
changes, such blips are more likely caused by someone opening or
closing a door elsewhere in the house, I presume.
