Location: Collingwood/Orangeviille (between) (Canada), ON
Duration:5 to 10 seconds
|Driving south from Collingwood on Hwy 10 and saw a streaking ball across the south eastern sky moving from east to west. Brilliant enough to see while I was driving on the highway with headlights.
Pointed it out to passanger - passanger in car and we both looked amazed as it faded below the horizon. It started an orange red colour and then turned greenish before going to red orangish again.
Not sure if it was meteor, astroid or flying craft such as a satellite or other but it was definately brilliant and occured on the same night as many of the others in your reported sightings occured.
I am a journalist by profession and am only telling you what we saw.
Will have to go back and check work schedule to make certain of date but it was the same time as appeared in many news reports about same event.
