Holy shit, did anyone else see that giant fireball in the sky last night?
Now that's a sentence I don't get to say everyday.
Well the good news is you weren't alone and we're not being attacked by aliens.
This morning (May 17th) at about 12:50 am, a massive meteor flew over the sky in Montreal. Those who saw it live claim that it looked like the moon fell out of the sky.

Shooting stars are one thing, but seeing one that close and that massive is pretty spectacular.
The fireball could be seen from Ontario and even in New England.
A few people actually managed to catch the meteor on tape.
