Emilia Samur and Jose Alberto del Valle telephoned IIEE on Sunday, September 27 at 18:30 hours to report seeing an intense ball of phosphorescent fire plummeting out of the sky against the slopes of the Descabezado Volcano. The objects predominant colors were green and yellow.

The witnesses claimed having seen a tremendous light that lost itself in the Cordillera. What they left a vast wake of smoke, and even kicked up a sort of white cloud as it went. The couple also reports smelling a powerful odor of burning metal around 20 minutes after having witnessed the phenomenon.

The family in question has a small farm facing Descabezado, and it is not the first time that they have seen this sort of phenomena.
