Blue Orb sighted from Las Vegas, over Area 51 Mountain Range, traveling at incredible speeds.

I consider myself a sane, common knowledged person, with some experience in aviation and military aircraft. I fly often and have seen every commercial aircraft as well. I have witnessed flares used in military training exercises, I have seen reflections of lights off clouds and windows (glass). I was an amateur astronomer and have seen everything from meteorites to the space shuttle in orbit. I have seen hundreds of satellites. While I have witnessed other very impressive UFO's with multiple witnesses, this was different from all the rest. I have never officially reported a UFO Sighting until now.

I was looking from the 20th floor of the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas towards the direction of Area 51. I was also overlooking the Las Vegas Airport late at night, as I usually do when I visit that city. Suddenly out in the distance, beyond the mountain range a "BLUE ORB" rose into the sky at an unbelievable speed, it did not travel in a straight direction at any time, it continued to fly erratically throughout the hour I stayed awake to watch it. This BLUE ORB would rise to, my guess 50,000 feet, and dive back behind the mountain range within seconds. The speed of this object far exceeded any military plane I have ever seen and could not begin to imagine that it was a manned vehicle.

It did appear to fly within a limited range and distance, as it did not approach the city, nor did it seem to fly far into the distance, but rather kept its location above and beyond the Nevada mountain range. Furthermore, as planes could be seen approaching from the distance, this BLUE ORB would disappear behind the mountains. I felt as if "it" was being tested with caution. What I mean is the orb would disappear when a commercial airplane was near and the orb would reappear when the skies were clear of visible traffic. I'm confident the skies above our US testing sights are secure, and air traffic above them is forbidden.

This object had no defined shape other than a Blue Ball of Light. It did not flash, it did not change color, it made no noise I could hear, IT DID FLY AT INCREDIBLE SPEEDS. IT MOVED BOTH IN "S" PATTERNS AS WELL AS STRIGHT AND ERRATIC. IT WOULD SOMETIMES STOP SUDDENLY, HOVER AND DIVE, AND SOMETIMES IT JUST DARTED AROUND SOMEWHAT UNCONTROLLABLY. WHILE I WAS FASCINATED, THIS ORB WAS COMING NO CLOSER AND I FELT THAT WHAT I SAW WAS ALL I WOULD SEE. I DID CONTACT HOTEL SECURITY IN THE MORNING AND THEY TOLD ME THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.

Of course, I did not have my video camera and I stand alone as an Eye Witness.

Thanks for listening.
