Location: Las Vegas, NV
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Round, white, non-blinking light traveling from the South West to the North West.

I was sitting out side watching airplanes take off and land. I live near the airport. I noticed a round, single, white light that looked like a star at first, and was moving faster than the speed of an airplane. It was traveling from the South West to the North West. It had no flashing lights, and was definitely not a meteorite, plane, balloon, or helicopter. I know how to recognize aircraft.

At one point, it suddenly became much brighter for a couple of seconds, then dimmed again. It continued to travel at the same speed toward the North West for another 30 seconds or so, then suddenly disappeared.

((NUFORC Note: Object could not have been the International Space Station, which was not visible from Las Vegas at the time and date indicated by the witness. PD))
