''Fire in the Sky''!
What comes to mind is...........
"fire from heaven" (Apoc. 13:13
It is one of the signs of the last times that there shall be terrors and great signs from heaven (Luke 21:11).
Even a hundred years ago Bishop Ignatius Brianchaninov, in his book On Miracles and Signs (Yaroslavl, 1870, reprinted by Holy Trinity Monastery, Jordanville, N.Y., 1960), remarked on "the striving to be encountered in contemporary Christian society to see miracles and even perform miracles…Such a striving reveals the self-deception, founded on self-esteem and vainglory, that dwells in the soul and possesses it" (p. 32).
True wonder workers have decreased and grown extinct, but people "thirst for miracles more than ever before…We are gradually coming near to the time when a vast arena is to be opened up for numerous and striking false miracles, to draw to perdition those unfortunate offspring of fleshly wisdom who will be seduced and deceived by these miracles" (pp. 48-49).
Of special interest to UFO investigators, "the miracles of Antichrist will be chiefly manifested in the aerial realm, where satan chiefly has his dominion.
The signs will act most of all on the sense of sight, charming and deceiving it. St. John the Theologian, beholding in revelation the events that are to precede the end of the world, says that Antichrist will perform great signs, and will even make fire to come down out of heaven upon the earth in the sight of men (Apoc. 13:13).
This is the sign indicated by Scripture as the highest of the signs of Antichrist, and the place of this sign is the air: it will be a splendid and terrible spectacle" (p. 13).
Sorry for going off the topic!
Hmmmm I have not seen the movie!

I just pulled "Fire in the Sky" off of my friend's bookshelf yesterday and brought it home with me to read again.. It's on the floor next to my bed.
I read it a fews years back and wanted to revisit the subject and behold the thread is resurrected here on ATS.
I'll comment on the Walton after my second reading, but if I remember correctly it was very frightening, had the same affect on me as Strieber's Communion.

Agree Unplugged. I would also put Allagash in that category.

I saw the movie when I was a wee fella. I liked the way travis kicked the alien in the face when it was trying to chase him. Awesome, inspiring! Fire in the Sky is the reason I'm not afraid of aliens, if they exist and abduct people as has been reported.
*EDIT: Another awesome part is when the little guys gather around and that plastic sheet is laid over him and he screams, looks like he's suffocating. Man this is making me want to download the movie.
