Observer
NameRalph L
Experience Level5/5
RemarksMy eyes are always in the sky. Was in our out door hot tub last night & witnessed this spectacular event. Seen many shooting stars but this was definitely a fireball. I was watching a plane on approach to Toronto & the meteor appeared right in the same direction. I’m sure someone else must have seen this.
