Sighting Reports 2009

Man Sees Aerial Object Move Fast, Stop, & Change Direction

Date of Sighting: September 26, 2009
Time of Sighting: 7:30 PM PDT
Location of Sighting: Las Vegas, Nevada

Description: I was standing outside my neighbor’s garage when I saw a bright light heading from the west-northwest to the east-southeast at a high rate of speed. The object slowed and changed direction once (about 30 degrees). Shortly after that it flew over my head. It then sped up and headed more southeast dimming then disappearing into my horizon. I would estimate the object was at 10 to 15 thousand feet in the air. This light had no strobes and was clearly not a commercial or known military plane, nor do I feel it was a meteor. I know this because of my background in A & P and the fact that the object quickly surpassed a commercial aircraft that was over 30,000 feet in the air (with the usual strobes). This light was brighter than the planet visible at that time in the southeast Las Vegas sky, as I could see both at the same time. (Note: The planet that the witness is referring to is Jupiter.)

Note: The witness seems to have a good background in aerial observation and he presented a good argument that what he saw is unidentifiable given available information.
