|Bright, multicolored light seen west of Las Vegas
My wife and I observed an extremely bright light which changed colors (red, blue, white, purple, green) in the western sky. I could not tell the distance to the light, but we were able to watch it for quite some time (over 20 minutes) as it traveled slowly in a south west direction. We were able to observe it until we lost it behind a tree and a building.
There was no sound. It moved faster than other celestial objects in the sky (sky was clear - stars plainly visible). The colors were not similar to colors found on plane markers. It was extremely bright. It also did not move west as planets and/or stars would - it was moving south west.
This event took place from the back patio, 1st floor, of a common condo complex. Our view is to the west, overlooking a pool area with other units on the opposite side. There are trees and other landscaping here as well.
Strangely enough, there were no other planes visible in the sky - which is hardly ever the case.
