Meteor in Canada

I just saw this video on the web. It reminds me of a meteor I saw when I was in New Mexico about 10 years ago. The one I saw was probably the most incredible, frightening thing I've ever seen in the night sky, a green fireball hurtling toward earth. I wondered in those few seconds if this was the meteor that was going to wipe out humanity (or New Mexico). But it disappeared silently over the horizon. 

Later, when we watched the news, it was strange to hear all the different interpretations of what we'd seen. Many people claimed that it was an airplane, so they sent out search helicopters to try and find it.
