Date: December 13, 2003
Time: 11:10 pm
Number of witnesses: 2

Weather Conditions: I can't remember, but I think it was clear with a bit of clouds and snow on the ground.
Description: My sister and I were returning from a long day of shopping in Calgary and live in Carstairs. Heading northbound on Highway 2 we had just passed our usual landmarks near Crossfield to know our turn off the highway was coming up in a few kilometers(these points being a service station and truck stop on the right side and a cemetery on the left). Adjoining the cemetery is an overpass and as we were coming out from under that pass and rounding a bend in the highway the whole sky from horizon to horizon lit up like day in this great white light that lasted a second or so. We could see all around, but thought it was some freak lightening. As the night returned to normal in that second, a white ball of light (from our distance it was about the size of a volleyball) came straight down from the sky and then bounced right back up the way it had come. I thought it had hit the farmers field straight in front of us, that was how close it seemed.
Of course we also looked at each other to see if we were nuts, but we both had truly seen this phenomenal thing. It had to be THE most exciting thing I have ever experienced in my life, I have to say, and I wish for more every time I'm driving at night, to this day.
TV/Radio: I had looked on the internet for sightings of this incident a few days later and had found a few. It was exciting to know we weren't the only ones who witnessed this, it still haunts me to this day (being close to the date 5 years later and current "fire in the sky" reports in the news).
