|((NUFORC Note: Peter Davenport, NUFORC Director, flew out of McCarran Airport on 12MR00. Prior to boarding an aircraft, he noticed two blimps flying to the north and west of the terminal building. This report is suggestive of blimps, in our opinion. We are not certain, however.))
Orange colored oval object travelling slowly east from the extreme western part of Las Vegas. The object was orbiting around in a circle as it continued going east over our housing development.
I was with my dog in the dog run area of our yard when I noticed an orange colored oval shaped object moving very slowly from west of my house. I live on the extreme west side of Las Vegas, central area. The object was also seen by my wife, who I called to view it. She brought two pair of binoculars and we watched the object as it continued toward us in an east bound direction. The object was orbiting in a tight circle as it was moving east. So it was actually going in circles, but still keeping a straight eastbound course. At one point, a Plane that hat taken off from McCarran airport crossed the objects path and the object appeared to have stopped completely. When the plane was well away from the object after passing in front of it, the object again started moving east until it was lost from our sight due to entering the brightly lit sky of the las vegas strip area.
