According to Chris Herd, a meteorite expert with the University of Alberta in Edmonton, the fireball that for several seconds blazed across the Alberta sky on early Monday morning was indeed a meteor.

Several videos emerged online on Monday, showing a bright ultramarine fireball crossing the morning sky in Alberta, Calgary, and disappearing after a brief flash of light.

Although short, the mysterious and beautiful light show sparked curiosity among Albertans, with many lucky enough to have witnessed the fireball at approximately 6:30 a.m., local time, in the sky over Calgary and Cochrane.

CCTV cameras located across the provinces recorded different angles of the falling meteor, which was confirmed by a professor from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Chris Herd.
