AMHERST – Two mornings, two strange phenomena in the sky.
Almost 24-hours after scores of Nova Scotians and New Brunswickers reported seeing a fireball in the sky on a trajectory headed north, a second fireall is being reported this morning in Nova Scotia.
Witnesses in Halifax are reporting the second fireball, which passed overhead at approximately 5:17 a.m., broke into three pieces before dissapearing over the horizon.
No official explanation for the fireball seen Tuesday has been made, but professional speculation is it was a meteorite entering the atmosphere.
