Andrew Wilkins was eating dinner at a downtown St. John’s pub, looking out over the city’s iconic harbour, when a flash of green light caught his attention.
“The whole sky just lit up,” he said. “It was coming in on a 45 degree angle, coming down to the right.”
Wilkins stopped eating and stared as the moving ball of light crashed down on the opposite side of the harbour, towards the largely uninhabited Southside Hills area.
He paused to determine if he could hear a crash, but the noisy chatter of the busy pub prevented him from hearing any sound the flash of light may have made.
