A fireball reportedly fell in the Alberta sky.
The incident occurred on Wednesday (Jan.17) around 5:20 p.m. and was seen from as far away as Fort McMurray.
"In the northeast sky towards Cold Lake in that direction was just this streak of an orange kind of liquid flame that would get a little thinner then wider again. It didn't look like it came at an angle or anything it just came straight down," said Fort Saskatchewan witness Corbet Kratko, who recorded the bright light on his dash cam.
Kratko captured the video while driving down Highway 21 by Westpark Boulevard.
The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Edmonton Centre reported via Twitter that a fireball fell from the sky. The meteor had a -7 magnitude on the brightness scale. A small piece broke away and a large burst of light resulted with a magnitude of -12 (as bright as a full moon).
A video of the fireball, submitted by Kratko, can be seen below.
