A Nevada witness at North Las Vegas reported watching multiple objects moving overhead at different altitudes, according to testimony in Case 92673 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The event began about 2:11 a.m. on June 11, 2018, when the witness and a girlfriend stepped out onto a porch to smoke.
“Hovering about 500 feet high and one-quarter mile down range,” the witness stated. “No clouds or wind. The object rotated about two or three revolutions per minute. On one axis the object was diamond-shaped with a cross inside the diamond. Both the diamond and cross radiated red, green and white light. On the other axis it appeared as a solid white line. No audial sound.”
About a minute later, the witness spotted another identical object at the same altitude but three-to-five miles away.
“At this point a private Cessna-style plane flew behind the closest object and I could hear the motor noise from the plane. Then out of the corner of my eye a third object, in the shape of a Sargent’s stripe with five circular, red lights flew a straight line path across the whole Vegas valley at the same altitude as the first two in three-to-five seconds and passed between me and the first object spotted. The valley spans 25 miles.”
Both witnesses got into a vehicle to get a closer look.
The witness and three additional cars all stopped in the middle of the highway to try and process what they were seeing.
“We continued for three miles and pulled off on Sahara, got to a side street, got out and we stood on the roof of my minivan. We are now miles from city lights with a completely unobstructed view of the entire valley. The object that had followed me is now stationary roughly one-quarter mile down range west, but changes its altitude from 1000 feet to a mile high at a slow rate of speed and the second object spotted seemed to keep its original distance when first spotted. The west mountain range is approximately two miles from our location.”
The witness said the object population increased dramatically at this point.
“We start to see more and more (approximately 40 objects) of the same type of objects as a star size at first, with a blue hue, but as they descend around the whole valley at each mountain range peak, they become recognizable as the first type of object spotted at the beginning of this encounter. I would say there were two-to-three miles separation between each of the objects bordering Vegas. Then two objects, one on the north end the other to the south, seemed to appear out of nowhere approximately 100-200 feet off the deck and hover motionless for 30 minutes. Both of these are identical, upside-down, acorn-shaped, giving off pure pulsating, white light and nowhere as bright as the one on the highway.”
The witnesses then laid down on the roof of the vehicle and began to notice more of the first type of objects in triangular formations at a much greater altitude approximately 10 miles away, crisscrossing the valley.
“In one of the formations the lead ship changes direction 180 degrees instantly and the two on the trailing edge jump to light speed and shoot straight up. Gone! At three different times we saw police cruisers pulled over with their heads out the window looking at what we were seeing. The morning light was appearing, and the objects seemed to just fade away, so we decided to call it a night. The drive home was only 10 minutes but halfway home I looked up out the sunroof and the object that had been trailing me was still there. We pulled into the garage in complete stunned silence. I immediately went back to the porch where it all started and sure enough – there it was! Finally, with the first light I was able to see some outline to the object which was white in color. Before I could really tell what shape it was, it ascended up into the sky and faded away.”
Nevada State Director Sue Countiss closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle.
“Multi craft sighting,” Countiss stated in her report, “with no defined shapes, changed directions, turned abruptly, changed shapes, light hovered, descended, ascended, fluttered, spun, pulsated, varied surfaces, larger than basketball, structural features unknown, 101-300 feet, white exterior, lights red, white, green, no emissions, no sound, airplane in vicinity during sighting. About 65 degrees above witness, lowest altitude of about 500 feet or less.”
