People across Manitoba got quite the sight Wednesday evening as a large meteor lit up the night.
People from Niverville in southeastern Manitoba, to Roblin in western Manitoba to Wasagamack in the northeast reported seeing the meteor flash across the sky in a bright green light.
Several home security cameras caught the event which took place around 9:45 p.m.
Jason Cruickshank shared his footage to Twitter from his home in Transcona. "Was just looking north in Transcona and saw a shooting star," he says.
