WATCH: Fireball lights up the early morning sky over Canadian province


Published in Weird News

(UPI) A fireball that was caught on camera lighting up the early morning sky over Alberta, Canada, was a particularly bright meteor, experts said.

The fireball was caught on security cameras and other videos about 6:30 a.m. Monday in the sky over the Calgary area.

Sightings were also reported in Edmonton and Saskatchewan.


The American Meteor Society, which posted a video of the fireball to YouTube, said the item was a bright meteor entering the earth's atmosphere.

It was unclear whether any pieces of the meteor made landfall or whether the entire object burned up on entry.
