Location: Las Vegas, NV
|Place: Las Vegas, NV (Summerlin)
Date - Saturday, April 30, 2011
Time: 8:22 PM (20:22)
Description - I was in my automobile at the intersection of Smoke Ranch Road and Buffalo Boulevard looking due East across the Las Vegas Valley in the direction of Frenchmen and Sunrise Mountains (Nellis Air Base).
I saw something flame and fall from the sky. It was either a Meteor, space junk, or an airplane.
I caught only 4-6 seconds of it. It trailed flames, then a flare-out and quick drop. It was difficult to tell distance. If it was a Meteor or space junk it could have been far away. If it was an airplane it could have been 10’s of miles away.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with this witness, and he sounded both serious-minded and credible to us. PD))
