  • People in Toronto report seeing fireball fly across the sky

The noontime show was likely a disintegrating meteor, according to the Associated Press.

Shortly after 12 p.m. the meteor began to burn so bright it blinded cameras on the CN Tower in Toronto as is continued its trek towards Buffalo.

"It was a perfectly BRIGHT sunny day without a cloud in the sky and the fireball was 100% clear and bright".

Eyewitnesses across NY and Southern Ontario reported seeing the shooting star, but one resident named Bekka was positioned in the flawless place for a peek as is passed overhead. The color of the display apparently was in the eye of the beholder.

On the society's website, an observer in western NY reported the fireball was bright white with shades of yellow. Someone else in Maryland said it looked red and had orange sparks.

Police agencies and fire departments around central NY received 911 calls reporting a boom that shook windows, but clouds prevented sightings in much of the area. A report from Welland, Ontario, described a long, bright green train. Because most of those loud boom reports were from the Syracuse, New York area, that's likely where the meteor exploded, said Robert Lunsford of the AMS in Geneseo.

Another eyewitness in Ontario said, "Astonishing, amazing, still get goosebumps talking about it". "The train was flaming white, wide and long, no smoke".

All fireballs, which are bright meteors, produce sound waves, sometimes detectable only by sensitive microphones, Campbell-Brown said by email.
