Looking for fallen meteorite

Researchers at the University of Calgary are asking for help from the public to locate parts of a meteorite that lit up the sky before crashing to earth in southeast B.C. on Labour Day.

University researchers have travelled to the Kootenay area to interview eyewitnesses and locate video taken by security cameras, but they're looking for more help to pinpoint where fragments of the meteorite may have landed.

They say the largest rocks may have fallen into Kootenay Lake but they estimate other meteorites fell on the east side of the lake in an area stretching from the Village of Riondel to Garland Bay.

They're asking anyone running security or wildlife cameras in the area to pass on any video that may have captured the light and shadows cast when the meteorite entered the atmosphere as a brilliant fireball.
