‘My windows all shook’: Bright light streaks across Alberta night sky with loud boom

From Global News.

Albertans got a surprise light show after a bright object streaked across the night sky, accompanied by a loud boom.

But a meteor is a piece of space dust or debris that burns up in the atmosphere and only becomes a meteorite once it hits the ground.

A bolide is an exceptionally bright meteor that explodes. It can also be interchangeably called a fireball. So was this another example?

Heather Yourex-West explains why it’s not the first one to fly over Western Canada this year.
