Reported: 5/9/2011 4:25:48 AM 04:25

Location: Edmonton (Canada), AB
Shape: Fireball
Duration:8 secs
Fireball streaks across night sky, makes right angle turn and disappears.

I was sitting on the deck, looking north, watching for the Northern Lights, about 2:10 AM. There were a few clouds in the sky.

A glowing orange globular object came out of the eastern sky, from between two clouds. It moved from east to west in six seconds, then performed a right angled turn to the south and disappeared behind another cloud.

I went in and told my husband about it. I found a picture on Youtube that looks exactly like what I saw. This picture was taken by someone else (unknown) in Bolton, Ontario May 18, 2009.
