Details:
I was searching the CFHT Cloudcam database for red sprites or jets and came across this very bright fireball that lit up the sky. It was so bright that the dome of one of the observatories managed to capture the green reflection of the fireball.

The event was captured on Oct 14, 2018 at 13:43:56 UTC (03:43:56 HST).
