A meteor illuminated parts of Western Canada on Monday night as it streaked across the sky.
People nearby said the fireball lit up the entire night sky and caused a "huge boom" shortly afterwards.
The RCMP said there were dozens of calls to offices in British Columbia and Alberta about the "huge green flash in the sky," as one person described it.
"Thus people can see it from several hundred kilometres away and often feel it is much closer," Gladman said.
Space: beautiful and terrifying in equal measures.
