Fireball over Canada

On Thursday 24th November at about 5:30pm MT viewers in western Canada could see a brilliant meteor pass overhead, which may later have broken up over Alberta. While not as spectacular as the 1972 daylight fireball seen over the American West, it still looks pretty damn impressive.

Video footage of the meteor from the BBC can be seen here.

[Update: Dec 02 2008 - more on the Saskatchewan fireball here. Fragments have been found.]
