3 UFOs spotted in Henderson, NV

My husband, brother and I were outside in our backyard looking for Mars with our binoculars when my brother asked what "star" THAT was - he pointed to what looked like a star, but upon studying it appeared to have blinking red, blue and purple lights on it. We looked through the binoculars at the "star", and realized it indeed DID have blinking lights on it - they were very clear to both the naked eye AND through the binoculars. As we all stood wondering what the hell it was, we noticed it was moving very strangely - we were all mezmorized. I was so perplexed that I ven woke up our next door neighbors and showed them as well - EVERYONE was completely amazed as it was obviously NOT a plane of any sort. We live near a small airport, and see planes every day. This was NOT a plane. After leaving my neighbors, I returned to the backyard to join my husband and brother, who had noticed very clearly ANOTHER UFO hovering VERY close to the ground seemingly only a few streets away - it seemed to be looking right at us. We videotaped ALL of it. There was also a VERY unusual amount of military air traffic that night, and four HUGE lighted government jets I have never seen before zoomed over our house towards the objects while we watched. Pretty freaky.

When we went inside to watch our video, all of the close up footage was gone and almost ALL of the other coverage had also been erased, however we still have VERY clear footage of the first object we saw!

((NUFORC Note: We will request "still" images from the video. PD))
