The craft stood directly above the center of the town, the most vivid assortment of lights. In the blink of an eye, it dissappeared, leaving a vaporizing yellow trail behind, towards our right.

Janico, is a small town, in a valley like area, in the Dominican Republic. A couple of weeks before, they had just started the inauguration of the Feast for their patron Saint "La Virgen De Las Mercedes". They use fireworks known as sky-rockets, but 1/2 inch think, to start the celebrations. That night a group of people had assembled in the park, which is located in the center of the town. My father, who is a photographer, had decided to put his equipment away, at our house, a block away from the park. A friend of mine noticed a firey stream coming from behind a mountain. He yelled, "Hey, look! some kids are shooting sky-rockets from that mountain." When we all turned to look, the comet like tail was going up, then it started to decend. Before we could even breath, a circular object was directly above us, blinking the most vivid assortment of colors I have ever seen. Then it dissapeared leaving a yellow light heading to our right, which evaporated slowly.
