A meteorite strike may have been seen and heard on Montreal's West Island, the Vaudreuil region and the Ottawa area on Tuesday night, according to multiple reports.
Social media in parts of Quebec and Ontario were buzzing with reports of a loud boom on Tuesday at about 8 p.m. E.T.
here are some more sources
(first link having some witness accounts)
so i guess the official story is going to be a meteor strike however it should be added that this picture was supposedly taken moments before the boom.(found on facebook)
now regardless of whether this image is real or not it certainly raises my curiosity towards this story.
