At approximately 10:15 PM pacific time I witnessed a bright flash due east of kelowna BC. I assume it was dry lightning, so I posted on facebook if anyone in my area had witnessed the flash. A local friend reported a similar post from one of their friends in Nelson BC at the same moment. I then assumed it could only be a meteor impact with the ionosphere for such a bright flash to occur and not repeat as with dry lightning. I assume more reports will follow.
Hi just found your website after seeing the whole sky light up south to north over Nelson BC and then 3 min later heard a huge explosion and felt my house rumble!!! It is a smokey but clear night. Wondering if you have any info about this? Craziest thing I’ve seen and felt!!! Cheers, let me know.

Well, that was different: while sitting on a patio in #NelsonBC the entire sky lit up and a meteorite came down. Huge boom about 1m later.
