Mystery sighting in the sky Sunday afternoon

We have received several messages and photos about a mysterious light spotted in the sky Sunday afternoon.  Meteorologist Mark McLean weighs in below: 

A fireball was noted in the sky around 4pm Sunday afternoon over Lake Ontario. No sound or damage was associated with this object as it streaked across the sky.

It is a bit unusual that a meteor (or whatever the space debris was) would be easily visible during a bright sunny afternoon.

Several reports of this object were noted in WNY and southern Ontario Canada.

Weve attached a link to a short YouTube video showing the descent of this object through the late afternoon sky.

As always, if you see a meteor or have a photo of any unusual object in the sky our meteorologist team would love to hear from you. Also, feel free to follow our social media reports on Facebook and Twitter as well.
