Winter 1983/84 & June 1985

Sherwood Park, Alberta Sightings

Date: Between 1983 and 1985
Time: Between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m.

Message: I am trying to find information on two events I witnessed in Sherwood Park, Alberta between 1983 and 1985. First, in the winter of 1983/84 I was returning from my paper route one night (likely between 7 and 8pm) and saw what seemed like a giant ball of fire of ice (with a tail like a comet) streak across the sky. It was extremely large and appeared to be close enough to crash within 100km or so. I'm pretty sure it was mentioned in the Edmonton Journal and was reported to have crashed in northern Alberta. However, I have been unable to find anything whatsoever on it more recently - and would like to know what it is I saw.

Not long after seeing this "meteorite" my friends and I saw a ball of fire slowly crashing toward the earth with a very long trail of dark smoke behind it. This was in June of 1985. We rode our bikes as far as we could but realized that it was going to crash too far away for us to catch. It fell straight down and rather slowly (we were able to see it in the air for quite some time). Again, I have been unable to find any mention of this event anywhere either.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
