Meteor On Alberta Mountie's Camera Caught While Patrolling On Dark Highway (VIDEO)

MANNING, Alta. - A Mountie patrolling a highway in northern Alberta had a bright spot during his shift — he saw a fireball crossing the sky.

A camera in the cruiser captured it so he could show people what he saw.

Mounties in Manning say the officer was driving on Highway 35 near the hamlet of Hawk Hills on Saturday night when the meteor streaked across the sky.

The Telus World of Science in Edmonton confirmed the sighting.

Manning is about six hours north of Edmonton.
