What is wrong with my box-shadow values? .main-header{ box-shadow: inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick,0 2px 15px #aaa; }

It keeps giving me an error to set my horizontal value to 0 which I have?

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
text-shadow: 0 0 5px #be7b31;
  text-shadow: 1px 3px 0 #e59740;

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

<!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.

Hi Kimberly! I think you missed one zero ('0') in here:

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

After 'firebrick,0 (here) 0 2px 15px #aaa; Try it and give me back a comment if it doesn't work :)
