yes. that was indeed a very nice meteor.

if I can ask, where about are you located? very wide locations of course…no city or street address :slight_smile:

I am one of a few astronomers around these parts and lately there have been about 4 big “falls” ( big being similar to this) that i have seen online.

all the other videos I have seen are from quite some distance…where as yours is relatively close. being the nerd I am, im always trying to figure out which is which and maybe just maybe if I see one that really interests me, ill grab my metal detector and see about making a trip to do a little meteorite hunting :innocent:

Yes Alberta. I missed this live even though I was up most of the night. We had crazy rain and wind in the few hours before this video.

I am in central Alberta by Red Deer if that helps you.
