Check out the meteor that streaked across the night sky over Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on November 20, 2008. We’ve got several videos that capture the phenomenon from different angles.

Scientists are hunting for the meteor that made a spectacular show before exploding into pieces and falling to earth. They are calling it one of the biggest meteors to be seen in the country in the last decade. Police in the province received hundreds of phone calls from people who witnessed the event. Many heard a loud boom in the distance as the meteor struck the earth.

University of Calgary planetary scientist Alan Hildebrand plans to investigate an area near Macklin, Saskatchewan. He said, “It would be something like a billion-watt light bulb.”
