The time of the sighting was probably sometime after 11pm on friday march the 4th.

Walking by the intersection of McCowan Rd. and Danforth Rd., I was already paying attention to the planes in the sky. Then, incredibly a large fire trail formed across the sky, just under the constellation Orion, as some large object burned up, heading in the general direction of Buffallo. The trail then faded after about a 4 count. This was no garden variety meteorite or 'shooting star' that I am familiar with from camping trips to northern Ontario. I was absolutly stunned by the sight. There might have been some flashes from the direction of the landing, but the light pollution made it hard to discern that positively. The sky was clear otherwise.

I was besides myself. This was the most spectacular earth entry that I have ever witnessed. And right above scarborough. I was watching the sky with greater intensity. I walked on down Seminole Rd. It's somewhere on this road that I saw what looked like a plane with a large white light speed by across the horizon. The light was too bright for a regular sideview of a plane and the speed exceeded my expectations for a plane.
