“Hildebrand says the apparent weakness displayed indicates this rock was unusual, probably a carbonaceous chondrite.”
Hildebrand and his team are eager to talk with anyone from Canal Flats, Fairmont Hot Springs, or Elkford, B.C. who saw the fireball. He encourages property owners in the area to check security camera systems for any shadows cast by the fireball. Anyone who had a wildlife camera is also asked to check that date and time for moving shadows. Contact the University of Calgary at 403-220-8969 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
