LLOYDMINSTER, Alberta (AP) - Canadian scientists say they have
located debris from a 10-ton asteroid that exploded in the skies
over Canada's Prairie provinces earlier this month.

Dr. Alan Hildebrand and graduate student Ellen Milley found
several fragments late Thursday near the Alberta-Saskatchewan
border.

They are searching for what they say could be thousands of
fragments strewn over a 20-square-kilometer (7-square-mile) area
near the Battle River.

Residents of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta have been
buzzing about the huge fireball that lit up the night sky Nov. 20.
