Duration:10 minutes
3 Friends and I were sitting and talking on the outside patio of McMullan's Irish Pub, which faces east and looks out at the Orleans Hotel and Casino. We were witness to a Triangular boomerang shaped object that hovered over the very top platform of the Orleans Hotel and Casino at 10:15pm or 22:15 for approximately 10 minutes. It appeared solid white in color as it reflected the lights from the top of the casino, yet it didnt appear to be illuminated itself. From where we were and the city noises around us, it did not make any identifiable sounds. At first I thought it was either a remote controlled drone or large nocturnal bird, but then after sizing it up against the surroundings, it had to have been around the size of a car. It also didn't move like a bird, but more like a object being controlled because its amazing maneuvering abilities such as hovered completely still for a long period of time (the full 10 minutes), tilting completely vertically for a! minute and then it shot off toward the south with speed that seemed as if it just vanished into thin air.

My friends were not as interested in the object as I was and looked away after a few minutes, missing the object taking off from its hovering position. I wanted to report it to see if anyone else in the area witnessed this object or if maybe this was a drone of some sort. Thank you.
