Location: Las Vegas, NV
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 and half seconds
bright blue fire ball falling down in the North Las Vegas area by Nells AFB.

I was driving in my car, turning down and traveling east on Katie St. just off Maryland Prkwy. by Boulevard Mall. Just above the mall looking north, I couldn't help not to have seen, what took my attention by the extreme brightness of intensity. My estimation is that this would have been located more directly above the Nellis Airforce Base by my judging it. Looked very simular to a satellite burning upon hitting the atmosphere but like i said, brightly burning with a blue color and tail. Happened very fast and there was no sound or smoke. Never heard any reports or news as well. My reason to report this is the variation of how this burning object was unlike other types of instances I have seen from meteors, burning satellites, and comets encountered. Possible that the close proximity was a factor but where did it hit? Never heard news of it since? while I am here I would like to mention that Las Vegas, NV is the brightest city seen on the planet earth and looks as though where a star on the planets surface. If our telescopes where to see a star on the the surface of Mars, it would be a phenomena of amazing proportion. IS LAS VEGAS SOME TYPE OF BEACON TO THE SKY??? TRY TO FIND PHOTOGRAPHS. thanks
