According to their latest estimated trajectory, “The fireball travelled in a southeast to northwest direction, entering the atmosphere near Boswell and terminating near Meadow Creek.” It is astounding that despite that narrow trajectory, the sound and light were seen from thousands of kilometres around.

Hundreds of people took to social media to report their sightings and experiences. Videos, photos and excited experiences abound.
