LONDON, Ont. - Astronomers from the University of Western Ontario have released rare video of a meteor that travelled through the evening sky east of Toronto earlier this week.
Although the bright fireball appeared near the peak of the annual Geminid meteor shower, astronomers say it's unrelated to that shower.
Six cameras belonging to Western's Southern Ontario Meteor Network captured the slow-moving fireball shortly after 6 p.m. on Monday.
The meteor — estimated to be no bigger than a basketball — was first spotted over Lake Erie then moved toward the north-northeast ending just south of the town of Selwyn, Ont.
Astronomers say it likely dropped small meteorites east of Selwyn near the eastern end of Upper Stony Lake.
