Duration:5 to 7 sec.
|Odd looking Nevada daylight sighting.
Driving back to Las Vegas from Searchlight(north bound) around 10 a.m. on US 95 at about 65 mph when I noticed a strange looking craft aproaching from the north and about a half mile to the east of the highway.Sighting took place about half the distance between Searchlight and the Nelson cutoff.
Craft passed me to the east going in the opposite direction(heading south) and was fully set against the blue morning sky.
Object was about two hundred feet obove the desert.
Craft was about the size(length) of three railroad cars,being three segments each the length of a railroad car,the front segment higher than the last and the front segment being narrower than the last.From front to back the craft dropped and got wider. Overall size was long and narrow.Color appeared to be charcol gray and was smooth.No visible props,engines vents etc.
I have been around and have seen many types of aircraft in my life but nothing like this.Looked more water worthy than aero dynamic.
