There are numerous reports this evening that a large meteor was seen streaking
over Metro Vancouver's night skies.

Witnesses say it occurred at approximately 8:20 p.m. during dusk, streaking
across the sky from an east to west trajectory towards the Pacific. The
meteor burnt brightly for approximately 3 seconds and had a low altitude.

The phenomena is also lighting up Twitter in Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle
and Vancouver Island.

On August 18, a similar event happened, although it was much larger and
brighter with scores of locals reporting that they saw a huge "fireball"
flash turn the night skies of 10 p.m. into daytime. It also had a long
tail and was followed by a large "boom" that sounded like an explosion.
