I have no doubt of what I saw.

It was around April, 2001 in Henderson, Nevada that I was standing in the parking lot of a commercial center. Around 5:30 P.M., in daylight, I noticed in the sky over my right shoulder a craft hovering in the sky. I was in the area of Pecos and Sunset Road facing east.

I looked at the craft, and it was in the distance, perhaps hovering somewhere between me and Hoover Dam at 2:30 O’Clock position. I saw it for maybe 2 or 3 seconds and then the winds made a huge howling sound (like a whoosh) and the craft moved at lightning speed and disappeared straight on to the horizon, first bearing right then left. (At first I thought it was a Stealth from Nellis Airfore Base on exercise, but this craft was much larger than a Stealth, perhaps the size of maybe 100 feet wide and maybe 15 feet high.) I dismissed it as something crazy as it was near the approach of McCarran Airport in Las Vegas, but I never forgot it, and no one will ever convince me that I had not seen an alien craft. It wasn’t a saucer shape though… it was different….it was square, perhaps on a curved edge, as it is hazy in my recollection. However, it was definitely not a “round” or “oval” vehicle. There was a certain squareness to it, perhaps with angular edges. I remember lights too, from the interior.

Anyhow, saw your piece on CNN and decided to submit this. It’s what I experienced. What else can I say?
