EDMONTON — Ah to be an early riser: first to the paper, first to the coffee, and of course, first to the occasional fireball scorching through the sky.
Twice in as many mornings this week early birds have reported fiery objects in the atmosphere above Edmonton. On Thursday at about 7:15 a.m. a fireball was spotted travelling low along the horizon from the northeast to the east, the Telus World of Science says. The next day, on Friday, a second was eyed in the west at about 5:50 a.m.
