Just had an unexpected sighting at approx 5.20 am Aug 10. Went outside to look for my marine radio out of a bag in my truck so I could make sure it was charged before we head out today. Also wanted to check on weather. Caught a lightning strike out of the corner of me eye so I started staring a the clouds to make sure I'd seen lightning. All of a sudden a large bright white light appeared from nowhere dropping down and then changed direction by what looked like 90 deg away from me. It headed towards the grey clouds and faded out.
I had to rub my eyes and assure myself I just saw that. The whole thing took about 5 seconds. The way the light went off was weird as if it shrunk into a fine point. Spent the next 20 minutes just looking and hoping to see something more. Pretty cool whatever it was...
At 1st I thought it may be a satellite of the ISS but the controlled drop down flight path and subsequent direction change and fade out had me thinking otherwise. Suddenly I knew I'd seen something that wasn't normal or natural. It had intelligent control. The fade out and shrink down to nothing keeps playing over an over in my mind. About 5 minutes later I heard and aircraft but couldn't spot it. Probably just normal traffic to Las Vegas.
I am part of a UFO watch group. The last 2x we've been out with the group, we've had anomalies. Something flashes up in the sky that defies logic. Last time we had 2 white flashes from a stationary object to the NW and the time before that about 6 weeks ago, we had several orange flashes from an object high up in the night sky right above us. Fascinating stuff!
