Dozens of residents in southern Ontario said they thought they saw a
meteor streak across the sky Sunday afternoon, and an expert says there
is little doubt that is what they spotted.

"There are dash-cam videos I've seen already posted to the internet that
... clearly show what I would say is unequivocally a meteor," said Peter
Brown, a professor at Western University in London, Ont., who studies
meteors and meteorites.

Many Ontarians took to social media or contacted the American Meteor
Society to report either a flash of light or a loud rumble.

The reports came from various southern Ontario communities and parts of
the United States.

The meteor society posted a comment from a person who said he was from
Toronto and described a bright flash.
