Summary : My son and I saw a something slowly falling out of the sky. It looked like a VW on fire very bright and moving very slowly downward. We lost sight of it behind a hill. We were within a 1/4 mile and it was low we watched it from about 1000 feet to about 25 feet off the ground before we lost sight of it. I stopped the car thinking we would hear a crash but did not. We went home and called the police reporting what looked like a VW Car on fire falling slowly from the sky. We went back but could not see anything. My son is on crutches and could not go the terrain at night and I was too afraid to walk over the hill on my own.
