Occasionally, I like to search Twitter for meteorite or meteorites. Last night, a bunch of people in Canada suddenly started talking about meteorites. A large meteor was seen - also known as a fireball or bolide.

Those of us in the meteorite hobby know that when someone says they saw a meteorite fall "nearby", it could mean almost anything - there is a common confusion between distance and angular distance. Still, with this many witnesses, it's certainly possible that something reached the ground last night.

Below, I've compiled some of the highlights from Twitter. I've used ellipsis to indicate multiple tweets from the same user.
OTerry: Just saw a massive firery meteorite fall in north york. I wonder where it landed. It was either really big or very close.

derekpurdy: Saw an amazing meteor in the sky tonight it was lit up for a second or two. Bright Green/blue watched it break up, amazing. #Meteor #Ontario ... it was something else! Never seen a meteor like that. Wow, all I can say is wow. (user is at 44.264135, -78.064328)
