Today I witnessed a large fireball/bright white ball shoot extremely fast as I was driving north of Calgary AB Canada. It was approximately 08:00-08:07 hrs MST. It lasted approximately 3-5 secs and was in the NW sky shooting towards the north in a downwards direction. I was travelling north in my vehicle it appeared on my left (western sky) about my far upper left eye vision and shot northerly in a down wards fashion to the horizon in front of me lasting approx 3-5 secs - Kevin Lanigan
