My guess will be a high powered lamp mobile projector or a starfield projector using color lasers. Perhaps randy johnson could tell us.

Randy Johnson is the Chief Inventor and co-founder of BlissLights. His distinguished career began at Hughes Aircraft where he was involved with the development of speed of light trajectory analysis systems. Randy parlayed his laser expertise at Hughes into the entertainment industry where he helped develop laser lighting effects for the Broadway production of Peter Pan starring Sandy Duncan. Continuing in the entertainment industry, Randy went on to create and develop laser projection systems and special effects for major theme parks including Sea World, Universal Studios and Disneyland Anaheim, as well as for casinos in Las Vegas and Reno

His company is in nevada city ca.

Very interesting thread with one of our best experts joining in, hope you can find someone, anyone that could have gotten pictures, welcome to the forum ALS!

Don't forget about the recent UFO crash outside Vegas.

My story is related to this only in that it happened in Vegas...

I was living in that city until 1999, and in...I think it was in 1998...on the same day, I discovered that the clocks in both my cars were off one by about 3ish hours (like 3 hours, 12 minutes) and the other was 5ish hours (something like 5 hours, 26 minutes).

This intrigued me so I started asking friends and coworkers about the clocks in their cars - and about 25% of them said the clock in their car HAD shifted - by as little as 45 minutes to as much as 8 hours (minus four hours, I suppose).

So Vegas has some weird goings-on, I tell you what.

Were they higher in altitude than contrails?

Holy #.
I never even thought of the correlation between the dream and the sky. That gave me chills.

- Well, Noone has showed up with any pictures yet. But I will definitely keep everyone informed on this.

- The video of the laser show definitely resembled the symbols the closest... However, there were every combination of the color spectrum. Each symbol was a different color.

- And you are absolutely right, with all the light pollution (especially on the strip) I can see how there'd be no visble light trail if it were being projected.

- No, they were unwavering, unmoving (completely still, and I mean, like a rock) the lights were solid, and uniform.. The only thing I can say that wasn't completely normal was that the symbols were kind of sporatically placed within the oval.. Not systematic whatsoever. Almost looked like they were stamped randomly...

- I am so thankful you guys don't think i'm a nutbag. This has been such a wild week for me with all this on my mind!

- Also, I worked last night, on the patio, and saw absolutely nothing.

(and thanks for the compliment about SG)

Drawing the symbols in the sand is supposed to lure the symbols to return in the sky??? How about dump that whole idea and try to find out what the symbols mean in the first place. Every symbol has a meaning.. But it can also be different to different people. However language through symbols is a great idea that has been used by NASA in hopes of contacting alien civilizations...And if you can understand what the symbols mean TOGETHER then you will understand the message.

Line drawing of the symbols sent into space on a plaque with Pioneer 10 in 1972.

On the plaque a man and woman stand before an outline of the spacecraft. The man's hand is raised in a gesture of good will. The physical makeup of the man and woman were determined from results of a computerized analysis of the average person in our civilization.

The key to translating the plaque lies in understanding the breakdown of the most common element in the universe - hydrogen. This element is illustrated in the left-hand corner of the plaque in schematic form showing the hyperfine transition of neutral atomic hydrogen. Anyone from a scientifically educated civilization having enough knowledge of hydrogen would be able to translate the message. The plaque was designed by Dr. Carl Sagan and Dr. Frank Drake and drawn by Linda Salzman Sagan.

more on the Pioneer missions..

Interestingly, in a NASA SETI program booklet (dated from 1979), it is suggested that signals in the form of "symbols" would be fundamental to communication with other intelligent civlizations..

The main page for this document can be found HERE

And the passage I'm talking about can be found HERE under "[109] INTERSTELLAR COMMUNICATION ALTERNATIVES"..

Fundamentally, to communicate we must transmit and receive energy or matter or both in a succession of amounts or types of combinations that represent symbols, which either individually or in combination with one another have meaning-that is, can be associated with concepts, objects, or events of the sender's world. In one of the simplest, most basic, types of communication the sender transmits a series of symbols, each selected from one of two types. One symbol can be the presence of a signal, the other can be the absence of a signal, for example. This type of communication is called an asymmetric binary channel. For the receiver to be able to receive the message, or indeed, to detect its existence, the amount of energy or number of particles received when the signal is present must exceed the natural background. Suppose, for example, we knew how to generate copious quantities of neutrinos and to beam them. And suppose we could capture them efficiently in a receiver. Then, with the signal present, our receiver would have to show a statistically significant higher count than with no signal.

NASA's SETI program was cancelled a long time ago.. But it just goes to show that the idea is completely plausible that this is some intelligent civilization trying to communicate..

These days, the main SETI homepage can be found HERE .

Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 missions sent up by NASA a generation ago carried gold plated records with sounds and images from earth on them. Etched on the plates was an interesting series of symbols. You can see that image HERE

These records are talked about on this NASA website HERE in detail.

As far as the OP's experience..
The bigger question I would ask is WHY those symbols, WHY at that location? To understand that the symbols need to be understood.. And since we don't have all the symbols we don't have any way of knowing what they meant. But it is interesting. Hypothetically, that part of the U.S. is lit up like a Christmas tree(at least at night from space) and perhaps this location was chosen because of this.. WHO KNOWS.

I believe the OP really saw something. I have seen a few strange things in my day too.. So I know something real is going on with UFO's... But just because symbols start appearing in the sky doesn't necessarily mean it doesn't have a very normal explanation.

on that David Caron video there seems to be a slight clicking whenever a symbol appears...look around 3:50 and turn the volume up..

EDIT: I must have missed a bunch of posts that already covered some of this.. so I apologize up front for restating, but it's be cowardly for me to remove the post....

Before I get started on this one, first let me point out that if true, this happened in Las Vegas, home to a billion lights and a million ads, glitz and glitter abound and this could have EASILY been related to advertising or some other display.

Originally posted by AmberLynnSuicide
I glanced up above me and saw about 10-15 symbols in varying primary colors above me in an oval/soft square shape... I, fearing I was just overtired, and delerious asked my barback if he could see it as well.

No offense meant but this thought process only happens in books.. no one questions themselves this way. "fearing I was overtired and delerious " ... you see it or you don't.

(of course, 100 people will post to argue that point now...)

Does this kind of thing happen often?

again, why would someone say this? Or at the very least express it this way? That question oozes storytelling.

Originally posted by AmberLynnSuicide
At one point literally everyone, roughly 500+ people were glancing upward, and puzzled. There were no light source below to cause any kind of light, and the symbols were so distinct, and unlike anything i'd ever seen.

You being a bartender, I assume have no experience in lighting technologies, atmospheric effect of light, bending, or anything of than nature but you are stating that there weree no light sources underneath.

Correct me if I am wrong but Pure is in Ceasars Palace on the second or third floor surrounded by huge buildings.. so...

How could you know it was not being sourced from below??

That you had not noticed a light beam or other projection device doesn't mean it isn't there. From your vantage poiint it would be impossible to see unless it was on the dance floor or open patio itself.

I don't mean to pick on you, but this is just another posts that distracts from the real stuff.

Hi there

Those look a bit like the Andromedan Holographic Symbols which Collier depicts in his book "Defending Sacred Ground", page 64-65.

One of your sketches looks very similar to the Andromedan symbol of "war/confrontation".

Hi there,

I was wondering if I could clarify some information?

From reading your descriptions of the symbols I have deduced the following:

1. There were 15-20 symbols.

2. They appeared in an oval / rounded square shape about where you work.

3. Each symbol was different but you remember a few shapes, which you have drawn for us on page 1.

4. Each symbol was of a different 'primary' colour. My understanding is that these were all different colours and static, i.e. not changing. (not the three 'Primary Colours' as in, yellow blue and red.)

5. It was the middle of the night and there were a few clouds.

6. Lots of people saw the same thing.

7. The symbols faded/retreated and went after about 20 minutes.

8. From your drawings, it seems the symbols were quite geometric, not fluid like certain languages.

9. They were not attached to a body or object, they seemed to be projected in some way.

Could you confirm these statments? Or if I have something wrong, please tell me.

Also, if your boss or anyone else you know who saw them could remember other shapes and get them posted it would help =)

Thanks for posting such an interesting thread!

Stating the obvious in 3...2...1

I'd rather see more pics of Amber than these symbols

hehe Anyway, back to the topic here, after seeing the imbeded video someone posted here on what people are doing with lasers these days. It seems plausible that given the location on the Vegas strip, access to a myriad eyes, and comments from other people regarding similar advertising stints they've seen all over Vegas, I'm sort of leaning toward effects produced by laser(s) here. Whether they are from Project Bluebeam or whatever, it seems to tilt in that direction.

I don't think I'm dismissing the OPs claims as she has even said she's doubtful of any sort of 'real sighting' here. It comes across as very anti-climatic given the reaction of the other people that saw these symbols that night, and how this never made other news. I think people are becoming more desensitized to these types of things nowadays.

you have there a message, one symbol, is light going through a prism

Another reminds me of the eyball heads,

stating the obvious in 3.2.1



remember to set the ideas and discussions aside in one part of your mind, and keep a firm recollection of that night in another part of your mind, dont jumble the two together and start thinking it was a light show or something just yet.

i tried to find a ufo case file where alien symbols were written in a cave in brazil. 40 years later a man was at home and noticed a ufo over his house, so close he went back into the kitchen and wrote them down, and to many UFOLOGISTS surprise these symbols matched. BUT i could find the photos on line sorry,

I did find other photos so comment on these if they are familiar to you.

also tka e look at:

and by the way i can easily recrete the ffects you decribe with, my 100mw green laser, very bright, BUT>> there is always a visible beam directly below it, like a LIGHTSABRE

I'm not sure how related this is but since it involved mysterious colored lights in the sky I thought I'd offer it up again. I originally posted this here back in 2006. The event occured in the late 70's. I'd be extremely interested if anyone knows of a similar experience:

I removed this because I wasn't vigillant enough and failed to realize that the video I posted has already been discussed. Sorry

I think this may be what caused your symbols , there must be a few of these in Vegas.

I tired to embed the video but for some reason it kept adding a \ at the end of the url making it invalid.
