A 3-light and a 4-light formation "dancing" in and out of the Luxor hotel light beam in Las Vegas

Las Vegas, NV 02/24/2012 9:35pm - 9:45pm (approx.10 Minutes+) I was located on a very high floor of the Cosmopolitan hotel in Las Vegas.

Me and a friend of mine stayed in a suite with a balcony facing towards the MGM / Luxor hotel.

At night the Luxor shines a very bright beam of light into the sky, which originates at the tip of its pyramid structure and goes straight up.

We were preparing to go out into the Vegas nightlife. I stood on the balcony and at about 9:35pm I noticed unusual glowing dots in the Luxor light beam at an estimated hight of max. 400-500 meters, maybe closer to ground.

There was a shining 3-light and a 4-light formation. They were „dancing“ around each other in the light beam, always keeping some formation. When they moved out of the light beam a few times they were still visible, but barley.

Those motions went back and forth into and out of the light beam. Always in a pattern and always in an unnatural movement – up, down, even standing in mid-air, which I with my knowledge only can call unidentifiable.

It was a very clear night, no clouds, stars were bright, airplanes and helicopters clearly visible and distinguishable.

Yes, there was air traffic from the nearby airport – but by its motion airplanes, helicopters, birds reflecting light, remote-controlled toys like octocopters etc. can be exempt.

After 5 minutes of being baffled by it I called my friend outside to the balcony – he confirmed the sighting, but couldn’t explain it to me logically either.

After another 5 minutes of watching the spectacle I went inside to get my phone, wanting to film it. As I came back outside those formations were gone, not to be seen again by me that night or the other nights we stayed in Las Vegas.
