I once saw a meteorite rip accross the sky at 3:00 pm in the day.
A sunny day with just a few clouds.

A white tail followed and was like a airliner contrail.
I couldn't belive my eyes....type thing,.....absolute jaw dropping moment.
If a Sumerian were present to see that. ..
Maybe it's point to the Sky and..... ZU!
