Did you see it? Reports of a bright meteor in Metro Vancouver last night

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – Lots of people were wondering what they saw around parts of BC last night.

If you happened to be outside around 10:15 p.m., you may have seen it. Calls came in to the newsroom, reporting what appeared to be a big, bright meteor fly-by.

“The base of it was a big ball… like a comet — white, though. White flames with a tail on it,” said one man.

“My first instinct was a firework. You could hear something. My second instinct was… a huge roman candle that somebody must have set off from one of the apartment buildings heading into Downtown Vancouver,” another caller described.

“Super-bright! Green and blue. A big streak was on it. Me and my friend were like, ‘What was that!?'” said another.

People also took to Twitter to report the sighting.
