Shape: Disk
Duration:5 minutes
On July 15, 1947 I witnessed a large saucer-shaped disk outside Las Vegas, Nevada.

We were driving from Las Vegas to Salt Lake City. At 1000 hrs. I was a passenger in the car, and overhead in front of the car I spotted a silver colored disk, which was immediately witnessed by the other three in the car. It hovered in the same place for approximately five minutes and then left the area at an extreme rate of speed. I am reporting this at this time because I have just become aware of your site.
