Shape: Other
Duration:4 min
Observed horseshoe shaped object at night front glowing yellow sides red over Las Vegas Nv.

At 8:25pm OCT 06, 2000, I observed a horseshoe shaped light high in the north sky. The front was glowing yellow the two sides were red. watched craft for about 4 min using binoculars.

During this time I observed other normal aircraft flying at cruising altitude appearing to be going beneath horseshoe object. Horseshoe appeared to be about 3 times the size of commercial air craft but this is just a guess as I could not judge the distance from each other at night.

Object moved from north to south then turned slowley to the west then did quick turn back to east then headed north untill out of sight. Night sky was clear but get a lot of glare from city lights and street light so sky appears a little hazy
