Over Telkwa/Smithers British Columbia A Possible Meteor Sighting

Date: April 19, 2008
Time: Approx: 2:35 a.m.

If anyone else in the Smithers, Telkwa, Houston, etc witnessed the object would you please contact Brian Vike at with the details of your sighting.

At about 2:35 a.m. Saturday morning I was sitting on my couch on our first floor, looking out the window, wondering if it was getting windy outside and I saw a huge ball of what looked like orange - yellow fire streaking downwards in a slight arc north towards the Babine Mountain Range. We live on the top of a hill on the outskirts of Telkwa. It looked like it was going from southwest to north. It seemed like only five seconds that it was in the sky. I couldn't believe my eyes. I have never seen anything like it. I was fully awake, (and now cannot get back to sleep!) having brought our new puppy inside about an hour earlier due to him being uncomfortable in his dog house. I am wondering if there have been other sightings this morning.

Additional Information:

I would like to hear any updates or other possible meteor sightings. I have never seen anything like it and because it was so big and colorful, going so fast, maybe someone else awake at this time may have spotted it too. At the time, now thinking about it, I did hear a roaring which prompted me to look out the window to see if there was a windstorm, and then I thought it might be the wood burning fireplace. Seconds later is when I saw the fireball which was slightly smaller than what the moon size is to my eye.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
