Large bright flood light over S.W. Las Vegas.

((NUFORC Note: U. S. Navy missile launch. PD))

We looked up over the western edge of the las vegas valley - above Bishop Gorman Highschool area - and saw what appeared to be a giant flood light in the sky - almost thought it was from a search and rescue helicopter but the light didn't move or flicker at all - it was SO BRIGHT. It illuminated approximately 100 feet of airspace in a fan shape but could not see it lighting up the ground at all. The object/light very slowly made its way over the western mountains and then we could tell it was still on, because the mountains become backlight in the dark of night.
