Did you? I totally missed it but it sounds like if you were outside last night around 10:10PM you would have seen one heck of a lightshow.

(Note: the image in the post is just a generic image, not an image of the meteor last night).

Twitter and Facebook predictably exploded with sightings from Alberni, Victoria, Nanaimo, Vancouver and even as far away as Kamloops!

If you saw it, consider submitting your report to this website.

Lit up all of Vancouver in green sun Large flash and disappeared but had initial small fragments around it entering the atmosphere , very emerald green, fantastic and almost size of my fist Was stargazing and just missed recording it on film…darn!!

I have to echo that last one! Unfortunately I didn’t get it on my webcam. It sounds like it was further to the east than my camera was pointing. Oh well. Next time I will have a 360° camera set up and I’ll get it!

Should be a nice day today!
