A Nevada witness at Henderson reported watching and videotaping a series of six bright lights “hanging in the sky” that eventually disappeared one at a time, according to testimony in Case 59929 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The sighting occurred beginning about 8:42 p.m. on September 18, 2014, and the lights appeared to be over the North Las Vegas area.
“I actually think this was further north than North Las Vegas, but distance at night is just a guess,” the witness stated.“The lights actually had a slight amber tint to them and you can see the passing aircraft. So we wondered if any aircraft saw the same lights.”
The lights looked like they were stationary in the sky. The witness believes that the camera settings were not correct and the video is a lower quality than expected (video seen below).
“The first sighting was in the northwest (towards Red Rocks), and the lights appeared at approximately the same altitude as the second recording/sighting that is attached. In the first recording there were only three lights. They slowly disappeared one at a time. Then in less than 30 seconds they reappeared in the north. We were in our backyard that overlooks the strip and mountains. We always look at the strip which is approximately 12 miles from our home. In the north-northwest there is not normally any approaching aircraft landing lights. This would be an odd approach for landing aircraft. Both my wife and I used to work for the airlines at McCarran.”
