Anyone else see strange lights around midnight last night? My kids and I were watching fireworks from our deck when 3 reddish multicolored lights slowly moved in a line formation from the north towards downtown Vegas (we were facing east) and I would estimate they were about a mile high. That would put them over the LV Speedway and Nellis AFB. My first thought was they were Blackhawks flying into Nellis. Then they went from a horizontal line into a large stationary triangle. There were no flashing lights, it was more like a shimmer. Weird and hard to describe. Then 2 more slowly headed towards them in a line from the north, but faded away as they approached the group. After several minutes, they slowly moved toward the east in unison, and then faded out. We were like, what the hell are those? It was cold, so we all went back in. After a few minutes, I looked out again and saw another one by itself high over downtown Vegas. I ran to get my binoculars, and spent the next few minutes staring at this thing. No distinguishable shape, only a single point of light that was continually changing colors. To the naked eye it appeared mostly red. As I looked at it, it finally moved slowly toward the east and faded, much like the space station fades as it enters the earth's shadow. I Googled and found this website last night, but there we very few and sporadic reports. Now there are similar sightings, all over the country, all around the same time! I don't know if there little green pilots, but I sure as hell can't identify them!
