Duration:5 minutes
Summary : Approx. 20 lights in a v-shape which did a double-helix formation downward It then formed a v-shape and flew overhead, moving South to North. No sound. Sited again on 3/8/97. Have photos.

Formation of lights around 9:0 clock high. One or two lights in front moving horizontally.Moved downward in a double-helix formation. Reformed to a v-shape and flew overhead. Saw again on 3/8/97, about 20 lights in a jumble. Several lights shot down toward the ground (looking South). Have photos of this. They reformed to a v-shape and flew North. A few days later saw v-shape formation flyingSouth then North. Took photos with Stratosphere Casino in background. There was no sound. Their lights were a golden/white color. It was very exciting as they flew off to the North. I felt that it was a fleet and not one object. It was difficult to judge distance but I was looking over the Las Vegas strip toward the airport. All of the above was at night around midnight to 1:00 am. Between all of the above I saw at noon a golden orb hovering. When I went in to get my camera (about 10 seconds)it was gone when I came out.
