Meteor in Canada – level 2

13-05-2014 15:00

A dashboard police camera captured a meteor. People saw it fall from the sky in Canada. It was reportedly about half a metre long.

In the video, the meteor looked like a rapidly falling white ball. Some people said that it had an orange tail. Others said that they saw a blue light and that they heard a loud boom.

Difficult words: dashboard (area in front of the driver), reportedly (some people say so), rapidly (very quickly).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
