Experience Level1/5
RemarksForgot to mention that the train was fairly skinny, and it might be slightly dimmer than a -6, maybe a -5 (same as first reference pic? Did a bit of googling to understand how best to report). The green fireball wasn’t that big but big/bright enough to see colour. It was also a clear sky for the most part with some very thin whisps of cloud closer to the bottom of my view. It felt fairly humid at the time, and viewed just on the border of downtown Toronto, but despite the city lights, the meteor(ite?) was still very clear and highly visible and immediately caught my eye. Being only on the 6th floor, I’m not sure I could see exactly where it could have fell to but it looked somewhat close in the north east quadrant, possibly within the city. I hope there is something to be found and that someone discovers it, that would be wild!
