Las Vegas UFO Sighting 3.31.2011

03.31.2011 South West Las Vegas, NV approximately 3:30pm (sunny clear skies) Yesterday I was enjoying the day in my backyard talking on the phone, when I noticed something out of the corner of my eye. A huge dark thing was floating sideways and up into the air. I told the person on the phone, “oh that’s odd, kinda’ looks like a metallic balloon has been let go into the sky by someone. And it did look like that, a grey/black sorta’ metallic looking with an occasional extremely bright light omitting periodically.

Rationalizing that it is a balloon I let my attention stray.

A few minutes pass and I look to the sky to see the progress of flight. To my surprise, the “balloon” is not where I thought it would be. In fact, it appears to be stationary and not as high as expected. Now it has my full attention.

I watch as the dark mass with the bright light glided horizontally towards the North West of the valley. Watching in disbelief and curiosity, after a few minutes, I witness it angle and then turn back towards the SW, towards me. I am now talking to my mom on the phone (trying to direct her view to see what I am seeing), the unidentified flying object is now heading directly towards me. I am sure it was just my perception, but the object was flying then stopped, what seem to be directly over me and then began to hover. A full minute passed and I noticed the bright light was still as intense but the dark matter was dissipating. I realized the craft was now starting to ascend. Several moments passed as it continued to hover and rise. Then it slowly drifted towards the North East.

My experience was over.

I always believed, just too much credible information not to, I just never thought I would get the opportunity to experience such an anomaly with my own two eyes.

I am not looking for validation, I am just sharing my experience.
