A Cone shaped craft flying at unexplainable speeds with distint lighting passing in clos proximity to my location.

I was working Grave Yard for A security company picking up yard dogs.

I was east bound Interstate 80 at the Spagetti Bowl.

I saw A quick movement out of the corner of my left eye.

When I turned my head to look I saw what I thought was A falling star.

I watched as the object fell downward and then saw it change trajectory in an upward arch.

The Craft traveled from over Sun Valley area to the vicinity of the Then Reno Cannon International Airport as fast as I could turn my head from left to right.

This craft passed Approx. 100 yards in front of me traveling in A north to south direction out over the airport.

As the craft came into close proximity to me I could see that it was A silverish color and was reflecting the ambiant light in the area from the buildings and surrounding lights.

There were lights around the base of the craft which moved in A clockwise direction.

The lights were elongated and oval shaped and I noticed that everytime the lights oscilated it was A differant color.

I have never seen lights like this anywhere before the clairity and crispness are beyond description.

The craft was close enough to the ground that when it went behind the , then MGM Grand Hotel it was Half way between the top of the building and the ground.

There was no sound, I experianced no electrical or engine problems when this craft passed in proximity.

Once past the MGM it took A steep upward course and disappeard out of sight.

I have written Art Bell about this Incident A couple of times and have even drawn A picture of what the craft looked like but I have never recieved A response from Art in reguards to this incident.

I know this is A cold case but I just found out about your reporting site.

I am A retired Police Officer of 23 years and I have seen alot of unusual things in my time , but never have I seen anything like this.

Oh I have seen numerous zig zagging lights on clear summer nights while on patrol but nothing came even close to this craft.
