Location: Las Vegas, NV
Shape: Chevron
Duration:3 min
Bright lights larger than a plane, orangish in color over Las Vegas.

We were on our patio having a late dinner and we were watching the planes land at the airport. I turned to my husband and said what kind of plane is that? It was huge. He said it wasn't a plane it was too big and it wasn't moving. I said get the camera. He got the camera and started taking pictures. I got on the phone and called the news station and they said I was the only call they had received and that they would check into it. The lights were Very bright. Three across. Kind of an orangish color. They were situated for above the 'Mandalay bay' hotel (that is where they looked like they were from our view) they seemed to tilt a little bit. Then one by one the lights slowly faded until they were gone. A little while later (about 15 min.) they were back but farther towards the mountains (more towards the Stratosphere) They were in more of a chevron v. Same thing happened but this time I called a couple of people to look and the only one to answer was my sister-in-law, but from her home she couldn't see anything. I called another news station and the guy just laughed. I told him we had pictures but all he said was he would check it out.
