Could be a chunk of it?
The passage of a meteorite reported by several citizens on the north east
Several citizens of North and the South shore confirm to have seen a heavenly
object brilliance to pass at high speed, Tuesday January 16
at the beginning of evening, coming from the west. It would act of a meteorite
which would not have been completely consumed in the atmosphere.
The Canadian Committee on the meteorites currently collects the observations
and testimonys of this phenomenon. It seems that the phenomenon was seen
up to Quebec.
The meteorite would have flown over the area of Kamouraska during a few seconds
at an altitude of approximately 80 kilometers to finish its race in the south-
of the province of Quebec or the state of Maine.
