Numerous residents in Edmonton and other cities in Alberta, Canada, witnessed an incredible fireball illuminating the skies on Sunday night. The shiny flying object – most likely a meteor – was so bright that in some cases the skies became as bright as during the middle of the day.
Many people managed to film the rare event with their dashcams.
Some witnesses also compared the magnificent event to the Northern Lights.
Meteorite falling over Beaumont. Got a pic although poor quality. I was sitting up for the northern lights so had to snap quickly. pic.twitter.com/VdbzIvz6mn— Wes Glassford (@rok4d) September 1, 2019
