(nevermind that pics and video i got is below, sorry for the poor quality). I just saw a red light glowing north of me in Las Vegas. I am directly due south of Nellis AFB, so it's probable I just witnessed an afterburner at a really long distance. The best I can describe it, it looked like a really bright Mars, but twinkling in essence, as it wasn't a solid static light. In my line of sight (facing due north) it traveled upwards and to the left slowly over the period of about 5 minutes. Then it dimmed at a sudden rate and was gone from sight.

Anyone else see that? Or any of our ATS military guys maybe clue me in on what i saw?

Got video too, don't be overly excited, it's definitely a UFO right now, but I'm really leaning towards missiles. Second one flew in a southwestern trajectory, recorded it until the street light got in the way, ran over and took pics til it went out of sight

Hi Vector99,

I am in the San Fernando Valley, just north of Los Angeles, and yes, I saw it at around 5:30 am or so. I am thankful someone else spotted it. You described it perfectly with one exception, I saw two, one much dimmer. At first I thought the dimmer one was a planet/star but it also faded away.

Thank you for posting!!!

Best,
westco

Regardless of what it turns out to be, this is EXACTLY what people should do if they see something they want to share.

I'm sure someone will be along shortly to tell you it's an F15 taking off using afterburners in an inverted climbout but either way, top marks for documenting it so well.

Thank you! I've definitely ruled out jets. After the first sighting I thought that, but after the second I'm 99.9% sure I saw 2 missile launches in opposite directions, I caught the second one on a crappy phone cam. I'm looking for numbers to call to find out what I saw, supposed to be sleeping right now, but this has me wide awake.

Not necessarily F-15s, but a launch from Nellis. Fighters since there were two.

Nellis doesn't launch missiles. If they're doing live fire they go out to one of the ranges well away from the city.

no way they were fighter jets Zaph, trust me.

I called Tonopah but no answer this early

Add- I didn't catch the actual launch, that would be incredible, I just caught the thing wizzing through the sky

They weren't missiles either. They don't launch that close to a city or airport where something can go wrong and they hit something they shouldn't.

If it's not missiles I'm left at UFO. There is absolutely zero chance it was a fighter jet.

Add- to give a better perspective, I'm about 8 miles south (bird's flight) from Nellis. I hear the jets when they fly, it's unmistakable.
