SASKATCHEWAN FIREBALL

Who says that we aren’t getting hit by things from sapce every day?

A brilliant green fireball startled onlookers across western Canada on Nov. 20th (5:30 pm MST) when it split the evening sky and fragmented during a series of thunderous explosions. “The sky was lit up almost like daytime for 3 or 4 seconds,” reports Gordon Blomgren of Alberta. Murray McDonnell of northwestern Saskatchewan says “my wife and I saw a brilliant flash of blue white light, like lightning. About one minute later a long rumbling sound shook the house.”
