Toronto, Ontario September 25, 2009 9:05pm
At about 9:05 pm on September 25, 2009 I observed a bright light approaching from the northwest. Initially I thought it would hit my highrise near Markham Road and Eglinton Avenue in Scarborough/Toronto, Ontario. It passed over my building at a much closer height than any plane ever has. Probably not more than a few hundred feet. There was a sound like buzzing and crackling electrical wires and a sulfer type smell. When initially sighted it was a moving white light, then as it got closer it changed colors from red to a light green. It was too bright to look at for very long, so I do not know what shape it was. I viewed it for approximately 10 seconds from start to finish, I then heard a distant thud after it vanished over the southeastern horizon.It was observed by myself and three other adults, and one teenager. The teenager felt certain it was a UFO but the rest of us felt it was more likely a meteor. Afterward we watched for news reports and by 10 pm the local media was reporting it was a meteor that was somewhere between basketball and sofa size.
