Object Flight Path
It was 1/14/14 approximately around 8:30 AM. My husband and I where sitting on the patio in the backyard drinking coffee. The sky was clear blue and sunny. There where 3 jets flying above in different directions and at different altitudes. It's common for us to view jets as we live not far from the Las Vegas airport. As I was looking in the sky towards the West I noticed something really odd. It was a barrel shaped possibly white metal looking object with bright silver light pulsating around it's perimeter, looking as if it was moving at an incredible fast speed. The object did not move as a regular jet or plane would move in a horizontal position. Instead it moved in the barrel shape with the narrow part of the barrel at the top facing the sky and the narrow bottom of the barrel facing the earth. When I noticed all the reflective light I turned around to look at the sun which was directly behind me and than looked back at the object to see if perhaps the sun was making it look that way. What I saw "clearly" was the outline shape of a barrel, meaning the top and bottom of the shape where more narrow and the mid-section was wider. I clearly saw very bright silver-like bright light pulsating all around the perimeter of the object. I sat there for 3-5 minutes observing it to get a clear picture of what I saw committing it to memory. As it headed in a SW position I watched it until it disappeared into a pinpoint. It did not look like any aircraft I had ever seen, both in shape and movement.
