We thought we’d left sights of impending doom in 2020, but it looks like at least one of them has crossed over to 2021. What appears to have been a fiery meteor lit up the skies across Alberta and Saskatchewan this morning, prompting tons of people to throw up what they saw on social media.
At around 6:30 AM MST, the large fireball was spotted on doorbell cams and out the windows of the early risers, culminating in a pretty cool start to the week. It’s not the type of fireball we’d usually mix with a morning coffee, but we’re not here to complain.
