Location: Las Vegas (70 miles from), NV
Shape: Light
Duration:about 3 seconds
Driving back to Los Angeles from Las Vegas at 1:20 am, I looked over to my left to admire the stars, and noticed a bright, white light, the size of a third of the moon. The light very quickly dropped down to about 500 yards (estimating from the desert floor), and suddenly disappeared. The sighting lasted about three seconds.
