Location: Las Vegas, NV
Shape: Sphere
Duration:2-3 minutes
floating reddish/orange sphere appeared to fall and crash just North of North Las Vegas after floating for a few minutes.

I went to look out my kitchen window because I heard tires screech, from a 18 wheel gas truck that slammed his brakes to stop in time for a pedestrian crossing on the crosswalk; The truck did stop safely, intime, for the pedestrain to cross safely.

I looked up and noticed a spherical object hovering above downtown Las Vegas, it was glowing red/orange; I thought it was a helicopter, because I see a lot of them in this same area. The object appeared to be floating in a up and down motion moving very slowly to the North East, almost vanishing in the clouds but then it came back down to the same level that I seen, when I fist looked out the window.

The light was a solid color, never changing or flickering. The object appeared to move north very slowly then started descending at a slow rate of speed, then out it appeared to fall out of the sky and crash downward but I didnt see any flash or explosion.
