I was travelling East on I-10 as a passanger in a Semi headed for Phoenix. It was night time and I was star gazing as I usually do when I saw this ball of fire heading straight for Earth. I was beside myself with excitement and I told my friend who was driving to stop the truck. I watched this thing as it was approaching and then it stopped dead in its tracks and just hovered there, a great glowing ball of fire. It was pulsating, then it split into two spheres of fire. They started to move like the shape of an atom inbetween each other, so fast, I couldn't move, all I could do was watch this most amazing thing that I have ever experienced. After I don't know for how long they formed together as one and landed on the ground. This happened when I was 17, and I am know 33. Something didn't occur to me until later, there were other people there, those who had stopped just like we did, but I was the first one there, they were after. We all just got into our vehicles and drove away completely mesmerized by what we had just seen. The driver is a Cherokee Indian and very supersticious, it freaked her out. Me, the electricity that I feel everytime that I releay my account is of a readable measure. The other passanger in the truck with us was freaked out too, and she too will never forget what we saw. Because the object was glowing, after much analysis of my oberservation I have come to conclude that I think there were mountains in the back. That is why I think it might be on the mountain range that I named above. I know that we were into Az about 45 minutes to an hour when it happened. When I found this website, I got out my Atlas and estimated my approximate location.

The object was a ball of fire that was falling straight to earth that split into two balls of fire that then started to move at an amazing speed within each other like the shape of an atom without the middle one. The color was a ball of fire. I think that I could see mountains in the backround.
