Possible Explanation for Green Light In Sky in Las Vegas

I witnessed the lights on Wednesday. It was a plane with 3 fire thrust like a rocket would have. The flames where green and yellow at the end of the flame. I was outside when I saw the back of the plane, traveling west from Sunrise Mountain, then turned back east towards my side of town then taking off west again. This plane was extremely loud, sounding like a rocket, which shook our windows.

Our local news had reported that Nellis Air Force Base was having Green Flag Maneuvers the same night I saw the plane. Also, I live in the residential area on the backside of Nellis Air Force Base, if this plane was not part of our Military I’m sure Nellis would have been on alert. I was wondering how our military could afford to fly this plane, having the funds to fuel this rocket.

There has been so much news media regarding the green light in the sky. I wanted to explain what I saw hoping this will help.
