CCTV has captured the moment a giant fireball, thought to be a meteorite, illuminated Canada's skyline early on Tuesday morning.
The fireball could also be seen from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia where eyewitnesses said they saw bright lights in the sky and heard a loud noise like thunder at around 5am local time.
An online webcam captured footage from above Masstown market and the Point Prim Lighthouse in Nova Scotia, where a bright object could be seen heading towards the ground.
Experts say that the fireball seen by eyewitnesses was most likely a chunk of rock from space burning up in the Earth's atmosphere.
