I live in vegas and I too have seen strange lights on a few different occasions. Those are not bats. I know what a bat looks like, I use to see them all the time when I lived in New Mexico, they are tiny and do not fly in a straight pattern. I have never seen a bat here in las vegas, not to say that they don't exist here, but I have never seen one.
I saw a triangular craft in that video, it looked like it was spinning around in a gyroscopic fashion. I can't believe there are moderators on here standing up for the bat theory. How are these supposed 'bats' bodies shining as big as the planes that are flying passed them? THINK. Bats fly sporadically, in a zigzag type of motion, bats do not glow like airplanes in the sky. You have to remember, the light from the luxor DOES NOT MOVE yet those objects can be seen glowing, fully illuminated, and moving about the sky, these glowing orbs do not stay in one fixed area at a time. If the glowing circles tended to stay hovered in one area only, then I would assume that they are flying in and out of a light, but that is just not the case.
Bats!? GET REAL.

I don't mean to offend, but your ignorance just totally made my day. I know you were meant to be serious, but I laughed my arse off.
Anyway, they are not orbs glowing as bright as a plane. The bats in the video are closer to the camera than the plane, and have a 315,000 watt light that can be seen 250 miles away by plane shining on their bellies. Hope that helps.

These pics are kind of cool. Long exposure shots of feedin' time in the Luxor beam. Looks like that light can illuminate these critters well outside the main light column too..

Studies have shown that, although noctules, Leisler’s, serotine and pipistrelle bats swarm around white mercury street lights (this would also apply to metal halide) feeding on the insects attracted to the light, this behaviour is not true for all bat species.
I found that original paper - here
So after telling us some species swarm around street lights, they also explain how bats are extremely sensitive to artificial light and do avoid it at all costs. Meaning not crossing the streets with lamp rows, flying under it etc. So, why would these creatures bathe in one of the strongest light beams on earth, for hours at a time? They clearly state bats do sometimes hunt for insects by swarming around street lights but there is no indication whatsoever for bat behavior shown in these videos. Even led balloons are more believable.

This is another video from a different angle. Seems legit. I think this could be a government project of some kind, man made orbs rather than UFO's.

Based on the Youtube replies, it seems that a lot of Las Vegas residents have seen this lights in the sky and many have called the government for explanation. They are always told that they are bats! These will be glowing bats if the authorities to be believed.
Lots of spotlights pointing up.
A few birds or bats flying around.
See it in most big cities at night (if you bother to look up).
Hey Mr Ornithologist, please name the species of "night birds" that are attracted to lights to eat insects? Given the fact we live in an urban world, full of lights, you'd think we would all be familiar with a light loving species that puts on such an incredible show.
Let me guess "wierdus nightius bug muncher?" The glowing belly bug sucker?

Always with your smart ass replies, why cant you just watch (keyword there.. actually watch) the video and keep an open mind?
You are so quick to debunk anything people post on here.
If you watched the video you would obviously see that those are not chinese lanterns.
