    DH and I were driving home last night - we live in a small town 1/2 an hour north of Regina - so we were on the highway when this Meteor went overhead - we weren't sure what the heck it was at the time - a plane crashing, or if we were being bombed or what - it was SO neat - and a 'lil scary!

    Here's the article from and Edmonton Newspaper: Watchers gaze up in wonder as light flashes across sky

    Here's a couple of videos of the meteor:

    This is similar to what we saw: YouTube - meteor crash in alberta better footage

    Here's another video: YouTube - Police dash cam of Meteor over Edmonton, Canada

    It was pretty cool!

    NO way! That's awesome! I would have loved to see that. SO which small town do you live by? Any chance you know where Minton is?

      That's crazy. We live in Lloydminster and thought it was lightning at first and then there was a big boom.....really weird!!!

          We live at Regina Beach...

          Minton sounds familiar, but I'm not exactly sure where it it!

              I live in Rockford, IL and I saw that meteor. I was working last night (this morning) and as I sat in my squad car, I was looking up and saw the meteor. I was like, "Holy Crap!!" It was not as big or defined as what the people in Canada probably saw, but it was the biggest meteor I have ever seen. It passed straight over me and looked like it went in a due north direction. It was so neat. Anyway, just wanted to throw in my 2 cents.

                I'm in Edmonton, and I missed it - I didn't miss the hype over it though! The city is going nuts.

                  I can't believe I missed it! I'm in Edmonton too and only got to hear about it on the morning news. That would have been incredible/scary! The videos were so cool.

                  No Hinton is close to Jasper, this is Minton Sask. It's very small and close to Regina. I have family there.

                  I wish I was there to see that!
