Lea Storry, an Edmonton-based writer, was sitting near the window of her downtown Edmonton home office when she saw the flash. She captured the spectacle on her security camera.
“I live in a – storey condo building and it seemed like somebody was shining a bright red light in my eye,” Storry said.
“I was like, ‘Who? Who was doing that? How could they be doing that?’ “
At first, she thought it was a police helicopter flying by, but then she saw the fireball.
“I thought, ‘That’s cool. I think that’s a falling star,'” she said.
“I’ve seen a couple of falling stars, but nothing ever that close and not so clear. So it’s definitely a first.”
Anyone else see the sky light up just a few minutes ago? Our security cameras caught it. Meteor? pic.twitter.com/f0fy0QcM0r
