Meteorite

 

Did you see it?    

Phone and social media lines were buzzing last night as the Mounties reported dozens of calls about a possible meteorite strike in south-central British Columbia.
    
Mounties  across B-C were answering a flood of calls Monday night.

Kelowna  RCMP Staff Sergeant Troy Gross says it's a little out of the ordinary for so many people across such a large area to call about a single thing.  It was a meteorite sighting.  People on social media say they saw the fireball, complete with a loud boom, from Calgary, to Nelson, the Okanagan, and Vancouver Island.  Several said the sonic boom shook their homes like an earthquake.  Numerous people reported seeing a ``very bright flash'' and hearing a sonic boom at around 10 p-m.
