Posted: 5/11/2005
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Shape: Disk
Duration:A minute or less
Looking north in Las Vegas I saw a grey disc moving erratically which vanished on a straight incline after less than a minute.

I'm a retired nurse who was sitting in my backyard looking at the clouds.

At first I couldn't understand how a bird could be flying so high. I saw a charcoal greyish colored roundish disc (saucer) to the north of me seeming to be going from west to east. This had to be at 13:00 because when it was over I got my phone and the time was 13:03.

The object seemed slightly wider on the bottom. The total time was about a minute or slightly less. It began to drift side to side decending some as it did. Then it moved at a steady upward slight incline and vanished! There were few thin clouds in that area.

I remained looking a minute or two but didn't see it again. Within a few minutes three (of what I think are military) jets went through that area. They flew two in the front and one behind, from east to west.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone, and she seemed exceptionally objective and lucid to us; we suspect that she is a very good witness. The object was slightly to the west of due north, according to the witness, and she seemed certain that the jets she witnessed were military in nature. PD))
