      A plane? A rocket? Superman?

      No, it was actually a suspected fireball that lit up Metro Vancouver skies tonight.

      At 9:40 p.m., a sizeable meteor (a small body of matter from outer space that burns and glows brightly as it enters Earth’s atmosphere) was witnessed by several drivers on Lougheed Highway.

      Twitter users from other Vancouver areas and Seattle, Washington, also reported sightings of the bright meteor.

      Footage of the meteor was caught on my dash cam as I was driving home. Drivers on the road stepped on their brakes as the sky suddenly flashed green and then pale yellow.

      Take a look at the video below for a glimpse of the shooting star. 

      Footage of meteors seen in Vancouver are rare.

      No official organization has confirmed whether or not this sighting was a meteor or debris from space.
