Northwest Angle 33, First Nation, Manitoba A Large Bluish Fireball

Date: June 2, 2006
Time: Between 11:30pm - Midnight.

Message: We witnessed the meteor of Friday June 2nd from Northwest Angle 33, First Nation. We are located where Manitoba, Ontario and Minnesota borders meet. We watched this object approach from a Southerly direction. It was a large, bluish fireball, giving off a light similar in the color and intensity to the light one might see from a welding torch. It seemed to be headed into the North-west. As it flew directly above us, we could hear the "whoosh"-ing sound as it passed. We watched, with great fascination an object that seemed to break into two separate pieces. It burned out and disintegrated in the atmosphere.We are certain that no part of the object hit the earth. After what seemed like approximately a minute (it could be anywhere between 10 to 60 seconds because when you experience something so incredible time becomes difficult to calculate), we heard a sound much like a gunshot and realized that we were hearing its sonic boom. This has been the most exciting event I have ever witnessed and I am certain that I will never see another object like this in my lifetime. It was an exciting and extraordinary experience.

Additional Information:

Message: FYI: Regarding meteor sightings reported for the night of June 2nd, I noticed that reports from Manitoba mentioned clouds in the sky. The southern region of Lake of the Woods experienced clear skies with no cloud cover at all. We had a clear, unimpeded view of the object as it moved from the south to north.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
