EDMONTON — An RCMP patrol camera in northern Alberta caught an amazing sight — a blazing fireball ripping through Earth’s atmosphere.

The Mountie was patrolling Saturday along Highway 35, about 600 km north of Edmonton, when the sky lit up just after 9:30 p.m.

Police say an astronomer at the Telus World of Science in Edmonton confirmed the sighting.
