23MAY2013 Christi Fallows and Cameron Morrison NE of Yorkton, SK, Canada 22:51  central standard approx 10 to 15 seconds Facing N, travelled from west to east...compared to a clock face it would have started at 10 and ended at 3 bright red/orange glow, circle shaped in the front,with a long orange tail with a smokey looking trail behind it, no sound heard bright as a harvest moon couldn't tell no photo, seemed to disappear behind the clouds but was still visible, waited outside for a couple minutes but didn't hear or see anything else

23MAY2013 Carrie T Wadena, SK 22:50 central approximately 10 seconds. We were facing east in the sky. The meteor flew NE in the sky, right to left.  No sound, however bright orange tail. As it seemed to get closer in the sky, I could actually see it break and flare up again as it got lower into the atmosphere.  As bright as an orange flame in the sky. Yes, definitely a fair size chunk broke off. Almost looked like something was burning in the sky but wasn't moving as fast as other meteors you normally see off in the distance. Was very bright orange and left a fairly long tail behind it. Broke off a bit and continued on north east. Not sure if it completely burnt up, or we just lost site of it because it went off too far in the distance.
