Researchers from Western University have released footage of a basketball-sized fireball that was seen throughout southern Ontario early Friday morning.
Six cameras from Western's Southern Ontario Meteor Network recorded a bright fireball over Georgian Bay around 6:45 a.m.
The fireball was last detected over Algonquin Park.
At its brightest, it was almost as bright as a full moon.
The fireball lasted almost 10 seconds because of its low angle of entry into the atmosphere.
