It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a meteor!
Social media was abuzz Thursday as many Newfoundland and Labrador residents reported seeing what seems to be a meteor.
Gfwfire observed a very bright object streaking across the sky at 1700 hrs. RCMP advised reports across the island and Labrador #meteor?— Vince MacKenzie (@FirechiefVince) December 17, 2015
@MaggieGCBC not sure what I just saw in the sky on the drive home.Thought it was a jet with an engine fire at first.— Jim Dooley (@jimdooleynl) December 17, 2015
While the possible meteor was spotted in several areas of the province, Jamie Hickey of Muskrat Falls managed to record some video, which was uploaded to YouTube by meteorologist Eddie Sheerr.
But some people were skeptical about dubbing the burst of light as an official meteor.
One Twitter user called it "space junk," while another mused it might be a UFO.

Whatever it turns out to be, meteor sightings are not all that uncommon in the province.
