Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

Meteors seen over Edmonton, Saskatoon in Western Canada

Not your average 'shooting star.' For a brief moment in Edmonton Canada the heavens touched the earth as a meteor barrelled down through the atmosphere to the Canadian prairie. Scientist are now searching for any remains of the extraterrestrial object which caused folks' homes to shake along with a sonic blast that lit up the sky from atmospheric entry caused one person's 10 year old daughter to exclaim,

"She said there was a flash of light, the house shook twice and it sounded like dinosaurs were walking."

It should be noted that one of the main theories of the dinosaurs extinction involves a large impact from a meteor or asteroid 60 million years ago.

Here's one of the widely circulated videos of the meteor as taken from a police officer's dashcam.
