I was in the Field of Ancestors when the strange creature came from the stars. It rode inside a rock that trailed fire and sparks in the air behind it. It rose from the eastern horizon, and, halfway across the sky, the rock split apart in a burst of flame that lit the sky like a false dawn. Pieces of the still-glowing rock showered to the ground.
