Bright Yellow Fireball Southern AB Canada May Have Also Been Seen In Montana And Idaho...Email From:
Stephanie SS ( Calgary, AB, Canada):
Hello, I was driving south on HWY 2 (QE2 HWY) just passing Bowden Alberta, traveling to Calgary Alberta. It was a relatively clear sky and initially thought it was an airplane dropping from the sky. It was bright yellow, and I may have heard a whistling noise. My daughter was the passenger, and just saw the last of it, before it hit the horizon. Did not see any impact flashes, or debris (dust cloud, etc). I suspect it burned up before impact. Seen many falling stars, but never one so large. It was shortly after 2am, Mountain Standard...on May 14, 2011

We live on the east shore of Kootenay lake in south eastern B.C. Last night at around 1:30 am, we saw a bright flash of light that lasted slightly longer than lightning. There were no clouds in the sky. About 45 seconds later, we heard a long, rolling thunder-like sound that lasted almost a minute. A friend was driving north along the lake road and saw a meteor and thought it landed in the lake. He said it was as big as a house. Rumors around here say it landed in Llyodminister, Alberta.
