David S.-Ontario, Canada:
Saturday Aug 13/11 9:00 pm apx
I live at (address on file)
Ohsweken, ON N0A 1M0
Sun was almost set, still visible light in the sky/horizon to the west. I was on my deck having a cigarette , my eyes where already fixed to the sky above to the north of me.
The meteor cam out of clear blue/black sky , seemed very close & big. I could see flames & fragmentation debris falling from the sides of it. It was about ½ a thumbs size at arms length. It burned for apx 3 secs then went out falling in the direction of Highway 6 between Caladonia , Ontario & 5th line on Six Nations territory .
It came out of the sky with a white vapor behind it, as it descended the flames & front seemed to get bigger, debris falling from it to the sides & back, it looked huge !
I imagine if it were later in the night about 2 am, it would have lit the sky up a lot ! The flames were huge.
