This film recreates the strange events which happened on November 5, 1975 in the town Snowflake, Arizona. Travis Walton works as a logger in the White Mountains. When he and his colleagues drive home after work, they encounter a flying saucer. Travis gets out of the truck to learn more and is struck by a beam of light from the object. For the next five days, Travis disappears without a trace and his colleagues are accused of murder. When he reappears, first he didn't remember that he was gone, but in time, the terrible memories come back... Written by

In the logging scene, during the lunch break, Mike Rogers is shown sharpening his saw chain. He's using his file at entirely wrong angles (would ruin a saw chain), and is filing the same tooth way too many times. See more »

There is nothing more intriguing than a believable hoax ........
The gullible will embrace almost anything if it is presented in a believable manner. Witness the "Cardiff Giant" hoax that pulled the wool over the eyes of an overzealous clergy. This movie will divide the audience along the lines of U.F.O. believers, and those who enjoy a good hoax. The movie is somewhat slow, has intriguing sci-fi moments, and ends with many unanswered questions, which may prove unsatisfying to some. "Fire in the Sky" is perhaps too talky for the sci-fi crowd, but overall the film succeeds as entertainment. Acting is good, as is character development, and the script is intelligent. Worth a look. - MERK
