Crazy.
18MAR2014 Alexandre Maravilla Toronto 22:23:00 1 second South-South-West over the city of Toronto facing towards the tower from St Clair Ave East and Victoria Park Avenue Green -- Fairly bright. Maybe half the brightness of the moon and about as bright when it exploded. -- I was walking West on St. Clair Ave East (on the North side of the street) about to cross the intersection just West of Victoria Park Avenue and looking towards the CN Tower in the distance just above the houses above the street. I saw the object appear suddenly. It had a long green tail about 3 to 4 times longer than the body and was fairly large. It appeared at about the same height as the observation pod of the tower and was about the same size from my vantage point. One single explosion, though the core remained whole and faded to darkness a split second later. -- It was to the left of the tower from my view point and travelled straight toward it and downward at an almost level path. It then exploded in a round sphere of neon green that was about 3 times the diameter of the object had been before. However, there was still a bright green nucleus that remained intact for a smal fraction of a second before rapidly growing smaller and fading to black. The whole sighting lasted less than a second. There was just enough time for me to say "Whoa!" before it was over.
