On Sunday, May 4th, a meteor blasted above southern Ontario in Canada. The spotting occurred just before 4:20 pm local time and created a flash of light that observers say matched the brightness of the sun. The detonation caused a loud hitting sound. The meteor was about half a meter in length, producing it to detonate with the force of 20-30 tons of dynamite, space science professor Peter Brown told CBC News. Although the Earth gets bombarded with up to 78,000 tons of space remains each year, most of them take place above water or unoccupied areas. Check out few of these dash cam videos that detected the short-lived, yet extremely bright meteor blast:
