Might be a very valuable intact Meteor under Water, also did any eye witnesses make mention of the Objects angle of trajectory, Not familiar with the River, is the River of Mud sediment at bottom or is it of channeled stone, I am thinking the Later of those two, if the Currents are to violent for Hookah Salvage Divers, Or Scuba Salvage Divers, a lot of swift moving rivers that are channeled Rock, have bottom structure that have abrupt dips, and if a diver or swimmer was caught in the Hydrodynamic flow along the bottom they could be held down by extreme current forces, it has happened to swimme...

I was in Ottawa Monday night and outside at 10pm. I wasn't looking towards the river so never seen anything. The night sky was clear and no wind. I did read the posts on CBC several claimed to have seen "it" and they said it looked like a meteor.

The report says the currents are too strong to send divers down to investigate it as they would get swept away ? ...sheesh, why not tie a rope onto a diver ?? or is that too hard to do ..seems to me they dont want to divulge anymore about the matter however I dont understand why because it seems that its most likely just a meteor

I live in Gatineau, heard all about here the next morning. I can't say I was surprised because of the following things I witnessed in the sky that night. I did not see the crash however. We were hiking real late, with flashlights. The place we did so was in Gatineau Park, and the hike is King Mountain, or "Mont King" in french. When we arrived at the top, approx. 10:30 pm we were dazzled by what we thought to be satellites in the sky, more than we'd ever seen before. I would guesstimate we saw, perhaps 8 - 12 satellites within 30 mins. Never seen that many 'round here before. Edit: If you know... [More]

There are other ways to recover objects underwater than using divers.

Geeze - couldn't they at least have used a more modern picture of a UFO? That one is so old fashioned. I would say a small meteorite or something to that effect. Space debris. Not that i don't believe in UFO's but it seems like everyone is being a little non chalant for it to have been a very spectacular sighting.

It Is interesting as most people don't know that Ottawa is Canada's capital What?! You mean Canada's capital isn't Canada City, Canada ? Why are us Americans being taught that? God I don't want to even ask about England City, Iraq City, France City or hell even Mexico City now!
