Full Description of event/sighting: Well, to tell you the truth I never really knew what I was witnessing at the time. But now that I've really looked into the "Arizona Lights" that have been reported alot in the last 6 years, and even a case in 1997, the same year I witnessed my encounter, I'm more confident to share what I saw. When I saw what I saw, I always run through what I know about military aircraft, make, model, etc. And nothing could match this. Being a strong believer in UFO's and everything that goes with it, I am quick to go through every possible instance before I make the assumption that I am in fact witnessing something extraterrestrial. This is my encounter.

It was warm night, around 8:00 p.m. and I was visiting family in Las Vegas, in the more residential areas away from all the lights and signs and I was at the time a riding passenger in my cousins truck, heading back to his house. As we came through town I noticed 5, and later 6 bright white illuminated lights hovering in the sky over the mountains in an arc like shape. My cousin, didn't even notice them, my reason to that is because at the time I was younger and I sat lower in the seat, and he is and was well over 6 feet tall and his visual range would have been less compared to mine due to the size of the truck and interior. As I watched, they were just so still, absolutely still. Not one of them flashed, or twinkled. They were not planes or even helicopters in a hover mode, they were perfectly still, and constantly illuminated

But here comes the interesting part. They were in fact moving, I noticed that shortly after, however they were all moving together, much like if they were really a giant ship and I could only see the rim where some lights were, since they formed and arc. Each light was symmetrically placed and evenly parted from each other; So I didn't know what I was looking at, either 6 smaller craft, or one LARGE craft. And by large, I mean this: The 6 craft spanned out over about 1 mile to 1 and a quarter miles worth of desert, and were at least 1,000 feet up. Even the smaller ones would be large in that standard, but if you look at the possibility it could be a giant ship, than what a giant it was. But also, as I said the lights moved all together,- another reason why I believe it could have been one giant craft, because they all moved together rotating from a fixed location, i.e. if you were to take a Frisbee and rotate around so that it was spinning, you'd see different faces of the outer edges, so as this object turned gently and slowly, one light would disappear from the right, and another would appear to the left.

After comparing what happened in Arizona to my experience I knew that there was a connection, however the daylight film of them says a different story, for there is no giant craft, just 6-7 lights equally parted from each other.

I never talked about this such encounter in exception for one time.


Thank you to the witness for the report.
