The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

I wouldn't blame Art Bell for that.

He reported the facts as related to him by the Heaven's Gate folks, not the other way round.

Vincent D’Onofrio gets first full night of sleep in 31 years
D’Onofrio, famous for playing the pathetic Marine recruit nicknamed Private Pyle, has long been impacted by Ermey’s historic portrayal of the brutal Gunnery Sgt. Hartman in the film.

“I developed a bad case of Hollywood PTSD,” D’Onofrio told reporters while cleaning the prop rifle he acquired over three decades ago. “To make matters worse, the Hollywood VA Hospital has refused to treat my condition.”

...

“I wasn’t sure Ermey ever forgave me for, you know, killing him in the movie,” he said. “Just to be sure, I was waking up every thirty minutes or so to check he wasn’t coming for me.”
