Amazing meteor video

Posted November 24, 2008 6:49 a.m. EST

Our friends in Canada got quite a show last Thursday!  A brilliant meteor broke up in the atmosphere as it fell toward Earth. 

Several people captured the fireball on camera.  Here are two views of the meteor, both from Edmonton, Alberta.  This is from a police dash cam, and this is another shot of the meteor.

The Associated Press says scientists will examine the area to see if any pieces of the meteor reached the ground.
