It is believed a meteor caused the bright green light in the sky southeast of Winnipeg early this morning.
The light was seen about 5:30 this morning above Sprague.
The planetarium’s Scott Young says space is littered with small rocks we don’t notice until they burn up in the atmosphere.
“They’re too small for us to track, or to see coming, and so literally, the first time we see them, is when they enter our atmosphere and start burning. Then they’re only visible for a second, or five seconds, or something like that,” Young tells 680 CJOB.
Young says they’re looking into the sightings, to see if any of it actually made it to the ground.
