not been noted on any sighting that i have heard of.

In November 1978 while i was moving with my family my father jokingly told me to come here. We were draining the septic tank on our trailer.

So I went the the end of it and saw what appeared to be a long cylindrical shaped object in the air. Being the all knowing 9-yr old i said it was a low flying aircraft.

He said with out a sound? I said it was just to far away to hear it. He just laughed.

While in Vegas the next morning he showed ma a article from local paper that said there was 1500 reports of a mysterious sighting in the desert the night before.

To date i have not seen a thing on this.

is there a way to look this up?
