Toronto, Ontario - Meteors Caught On Film

Date: June 26, 2004
Time: 11:00 p.m.

Well I was sitting outside the skyline of Toronto. It was a clear night, very calm. The time was about 10:45-11:00 p.m. June 26, 2004, when I looked to my west and saw a bright object coming at me and to my left, meaning it would pass me to the South a bit. This object was bright orange, with a greenish hue. It moved about 1/3 of what normal fireballs moved, and there were 4 pieces. I am a Storm Chaser from Southern California, and Storm Chase from SW USA, to Toronto, Canada every year. The end of my chase ended up in Toronto that night I witnessed this. Sparks came off these objects and disintegrated behind the main fireballs. Oh they were beautiful! This reminded me of the Columbia video I got from Northern California, near Bishop,CA when Columbia came in. I still have the video, never turned it in. Anyway the fireball got to it's highest point in the Southern Sky. I will say 70 degrees. I ran over to my car, and got my digital camera. I went back to the spot I first saw it in, and snapped this picture (in e-mail). At the time, only 2 fireballs were visible going to the East. The disappeared behind the horizon shortly after.

I would like to thank the witness for the report and photo he took.
