CSS CSS Basics (2014) Enhancing the Design With CSS Text Shadows and Box Shadows

applying second box shadow

I'm receiving an error message saying to separate the 2 box shadows with a comma, which i'm doing. Any idea if i'm making some other egregious errors? I have tried putting inset on either end of the second set of values and putting all the values on the same line.

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-heading {
 text-shadow: 0px 0px 5px #be7b31; 

.title {
  text-shadow: 1px 3px 0px #e59740;

.main-header {
  box-shadow: 0px 2px 15px #aaa, 
              0 0 60px 5px firebrick inset;
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1>

        <div class="primary-content">
            <p class="intro">
                Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.
            <a class="callout" href="#more">Find out more</a>
        </div><!-- End .primary-content -->

Hey Cody,

There is definitely a bug in the challenge. I was finally able to pass the challenge by deleting the pixel units from the 0's inside .main-header (and place inset in its position at the beginning of the 2nd box shadow), although we shouldn't have to remove the px units because it's perfectly valid CSS code to leave the units on there (as you do in the previous selectors). This is definitely something that needs to be checked out by the staff because that frustrated me and I had already done it before lol.

.main-header {
  box-shadow: 0 2px 15px #aaa, inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick;
