According to video and testimony shared on an online forum, multiple reports of a fireball over the US were posted to Facebook, and along with it, many citizens experienced a brief flickering of lights. The bright meteor-like object was apparently spotted all over the countryside, from Texas to North Dakota, and during the same time frame, lights flickered in homes across Iowa and Nebraska, and possibly in New York too:

Curiously enough, there were many verified reports of fireballs over Colorado, according to AMSMeteors.org, but they were from January 16th, a night after these events.
