On Aug. 31, people took to social media with photos and videos of a mysterious bright object in the sky over the Edmonton area.

Many speculated that it appeared to be a meteor. They were right, say scientists from the University of Alberta.

"Scientists have verified with almost pinpoint-accuracy the trajectory of the fireball, along with the potential area where any meteorites associated with the event may have fallen," the university's faculty of science said Wednesday in a news release.

The fireball ended 20 kilometres above Camrose, about 100 kilometres southeast of Edmonton, which may explain reports of a sonic boom by residents in the area, the release said.

Despite hours of "exhaustive searching" no meteorites have been found. Every newly fallen meteorite is like a spacecraft bringing a sample back from an asteroid or another planet. It's a chance to study a nearly pristine sample from space.
