The witness and his wife were sitting in their backyard at 9 p.m. on July 18, 2018.
“We noticed a solid orange, orb-like object moving at 300-400 mph at approximately 10,000 feet in a northeast direction almost directly above the I-15 freeway leaving the Las Vegas Strip area,” the witness stated. “This object was trailed by a high-speed aircraft with traditional aircraft night lighting, which was trailing the object by about three-quarters of a mile, with red/green on wingtips clearly visible as opposed to the solid orange orb. I'm a pilot and this was no aircraft I've seen. This was witnessed also by my wife. I attempted some video, too much surrounding light for my shots to come out.”
Nevada MUFON State Director Sue Countiss closed this case as an Unknown-Other.
