Lights, orbs or UFO's were seen and filmed over Las Vegas from The Sahara Hotel last on the 8th October 2010 at approx 5 to 6 pm. I saw at least ten of them fly in some sort of formation south then east to west across the north mountain range heading from the Area 51 / Groom Lake region.

At first I assumed they were helicopters but they seemed to move too slowly and upon zooming with the 10 X optical zoom and taking stills no structure could be seen. These were shot on auto mode ISO 800 1/30 + 1/25 F4.3 @ 9 megapixels, the camera was a Canon Powershot SX110 IS with 10 X Optical Zoom, a very good piece of consumer kit.

I know alot of helicopter flights go out to the Grand Canyon from Vegas but the lights were all the same and moved in a very odd way, bright pulsing white with strobes of red pulsing up and down it seemed (which the stills show). No solid structure can be seen at all, either behind or in front of the lights.

I've checked the national weather data for Las Vegas for that day, the official wind direction was from the South South West, these things came from the North and made a turn east.
