was looking out of window to what i thought was a star, object grew bigger and brighter as it descended. pulsating, and appeared to have rotation. i observed it for quite some time, a shower of sparks came from the bottom, it stopped pulsating, grew bright white, and dissapeared like a streak of light to the north. approx 3am, lasted for perhaps 5-7 min. this was in 1995.reported to manitoba museum.
