RemarksIt happened so fast, but the fire Val appeared out of nowhere, in a westerly direction above the mountain horizon. Then, just as soon as it appeared out of nowhere, it fell straight down and out of site. The best description I can give it that it looked like an artillery shell firework does before the explode, only appeared out of nowhere and fell instead of shooting up. There’s absolutely no way I misinterpreted what it was, as I happened to be looking at the sky to observe the constellations and planets. It looked almost like it had appeared and then fell out of the sky!!!
