A fireball buzzed over the Prairies on Monday, temporarily piercing the dark of the early morning sky with a flash of blinding blue light. The meteor darted across the sky around 6:30 a.m. MT, startling early risers who were lucky to catch a glimpse of the sudden glow. The light was captured by security cameras across Edmonton, and social media soon lit up with reports from observers who caught a glimpse of it. The spectacle was seen in at least two provinces, with scattered reports from Jasper to Saskatoon. As of 8:30 a.m., there were 42 unverified reports of fireball sightings on the American Meteor Society (AMS) website.
