The flash appeared in the distance beyond the trees and illuminated the distant sky. No sound was heard.

08OCT2012 Jenny Albers Between Nobel and exit 241 On hwy 69, Ontario, Canada 20:30 aprox. 8 sec We were traveling on the highway. We were going NW. The meteor was in the middle, at the top of the windshield and went to the bottom right. No sound. But it was a bright ball of fire, red and yellow. It had a fiery tail behind it. same as moon. No. I thought at first it was the moon on fire, falling. Then I thought it was a plane crashing. But I realized that it wasn't. It was quick and bright. It looked like a fire ball, the size of a small moon. There was a burning tail trailing it. When it went below the horizon, the sky lit up.
08OCT2012 Miguel Breton Markstay, Ontario, Canada 20h30 10 seconds South to North i was facing West Big green fireball shot across the lower part of the sky right into the hills behind the trees into the rocky hills, it lit up the sky for a couple seconds once it hit the ground. when it traveled behind the clouds it was an apperant green colored light almost like a green firework, alot bigger and traveled alot farther but it was very close looks like it hit wahnapitae, so 15 km from my location wasnt a firework, wasnt a flare, wasnt an airplane, it was a little smaller than the size of the moon
