Major Meteor Sighting in Vancouver

A meteor dazzled people in parts of B.C., Washington and Oregon on Saturday night.

Jen Pickard was fortunate enough to snap a photo of the tail end of what’s believed to be a meteor. She and her friend were paddling in Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island after watching the sun set, when a “huge ball of fire flew by” at about 8:20 p.m.

“It was yellowish blue and flew in an arc,” Pickard wrote in an email to The Huffington Post B.C. She described the 45-second streak like a shooting star but much larger and closer.
