Fireball last night, may have landed near Meadow Creek
We may have had a meteorite strike last night in the Kootenays, and that led to a lot of calls to the Mounties.
Numerous people took to social media to say they heard a sonic boom and a fireball hit the ground just after 10pm.
Police received calls from Nelson, Trail, the Okanagan, the Comox Valley and as far as Calgary.
One Twitter use said the event ``definitely'' shook their house in Nelson while another reported a ``very bright flash'' followed by a ``large bang'' about four minutes later.
A resident in Creston reported seeing a ``huge green flash in the sky'' followed by an orange fireball then a sonic boom that shook the house.
The American Meteor Society received over 90 reports about the fireball event.
The society says the fireball was seen primarily from BC but was also seen from Alberta and Saskatchewan as well as from Washington, Idaho and Montana.
According to their latest estimated trajectory, the fireball traveled in a southeast to northwest direction entering the atmosphere near Boswell and terminating near Meadow Creek.
