On Sunday, May the 4th, a meteor blasted over southern Ontario in Canada. The spotting happened just before 4:20 pm local time and formed a flash of light that spectators say resembled the brightness of the sun. The blast caused a loud beating sound. The meteor was over half a meter in length, producing it to explode with the strength of 20-30 tons of dynamite, Professor Peter Brown told CBC News. Though the Earth gets bombed with up to 78,000 tons of space residues every year, most of them take place over water or vacant areas.
