UFO identified on Monday 02 November 2009 at 20:45hrs in Triangle, South eastern lowveld area in Zimbabwe

I am located in a small sugarcane growing and milling town known as triangle limited in the south eastern lowveld area of Zimbabwe.

Last night, around 20:45 PM, Monday evening, we saw a flash light so intense like that of a camera flash. The light covered the whole area possibly 50 kilometer radius. The light exceeded the full moon as well as flourescent lighting that is installed in the village. The light flashed for about 6 seconds and disappeared .

We looked all around us but could not see anything after some few seconds we suddenly saw a flash and ball of fire coming from the sky like a comet star coming down but the ball of fire was going at lighting speed towards the western direction. The flash and ball of fire disappeared and after some few seconds we heard deafening sound like a minor earth tremor happening. and that was it.

My earlier suspicion was that its a big aeroplace coming down but then an aeroplane would have not made such light and huge noise! The object left a trail of orange fire on its back before it disappeared.
